"Extraordinary You": Magnifique Mixed Media "Autumnal Bliss" Kit~!

Good morning everybody! I'm here with you today to give you one last look at the Magnifique Mixed Media November Kit "Autumnal Bliss", released by C'est Magnifique Kits. My sister Kelly Foster and I have really enjoyed our time with this kit, from the very first planning stages to putting the final touches on our projects. We've appreciated the excitement and feedback received as well! And we look forward to continuing to offer inspiring, media-filled unique kits that will help you to grow in your mixed media knowledge and love :)

Today, I created a layout using this beautiful kit. 

"Extraordinary You"
I really wanted to use as many of the mediums available in this kit, which meant combing all of the warm, rich colors in a balanced way. I used the "Mini Ceiling Tile" mask and Gelatos as the starting point in my project by basically "coloring" with them (over the mask) and then spritzing over top before blending with a wipe. This helps the Gelatos spread a little easier. 

For my background paper, I used the "Dreamer" Collection from 7 Dots Studio. It had the perfect hint of color to compliment the color scheme of my layout.

After zapping the masked area with a heat gun, I used some light modeling paste along with the mask and some embossing powder and created additional texture in that way. Then I'm ready to add the Twinkling H2Os, in just a small amount so as not to overpower the rest of the layout. I simply pour a drop on top of the embossed area and use my spatula to carefully spread it around. Allow to dry on its own in order to keep the vibrancy of the colors (the heat tool can cause the watercolor to spread, thin out, and fade). In contrast, if you're wanting to tone down the color, you can spritz with water and/or pull up some of the color by dabbing with a wipe.




Thank-you for visiting today! Stay tuned for the first look at our upcoming December MMM Kit! :)
