Lily Bee Design | Music Under The Stars

I created a layout for the Lily Bee blog on Monday.  This week on the Lily Bee blog we are focusing on mixed media paint & textures, so I incorporated colored mist, acrylic craft paint, modeling paste, watercolor, Stickles glitter, and chalk ink onto my layout.  Sometimes it’s so fun to get your hands dirty for a bit!20130901-IMG_1514_LilyBee_CN
I’ve been creating my own colored mists with Martha Stewart acrylic craft paint mixed with water in a mini mister!  They are so fun and economical!  I used the same method with my September layout for Write.Click.Scrapbook. here.
My first step was to use some colored mists and spray onto my background cardstock with a mask.  Then I used a different mask to spread some modeling paste onto the layout in the shape of stars.  Modeling paste actually dries pretty fast, so you need to work fast with it.  After the modeling paste stars dried, I painted them with some acrylic craft paint.
I outlined some of the sprayed stars with my Sharpie pen to emphasize some of them.  I also painted additional stars and circles onto the layout using craft paint, chalk ink, and watercolor paint.
The random smattering of paint clusters gives the layout a carefree and fun look, which I like.
Lastly, I added some letter stickers for my title, and added some journaling with my Sharpie pen.
