Paper craft project no. 249: My girl mixed media layout


Hello! It’s my turn to share a project over at the SRM Stickers blog! When I saw “mixed media layout” in Susan’s list for our August assignments, I had the perfect subject: my niece Alexa. I affectionately call her The Adorable One — she’s been that to me since the day I held her in my arms when she was a just 5 days old. She’ll be turning 3 this October, but this is one of my favorite photos of her. (Well, all photos with her in it are my favorite!) It was taken when she was 5 months old.

Anyway, I had a blast playing with stencils, modeling paste, Twinkling H2Os, Distress inks, Inktense blocks, plastic resin flowers I made, STAMPlorations flower stamps, and super-fun stickers (Baby Girl, Everyday Girl, and Baby) and doilies from SRM Stickers! I have a photo tutorial for this layout on the SRM Stickers blog so you can see how I put this mixed media layout together.

I’m linking my project to these fun challenges: The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #3 – Stencils and Pastes; Simon Says Wednesday Challenge – Anything Goes (3rd entry); Southern Girls Challenge – It’s All About Texture; Little Red Wagon Challenge #252 – Girl Power; and Crafty Creations Challenge #270 – Dig Deep, Use Something Old from Your Stash (I made the plastic resin flowers over a year ago – I made hundreds of them and I’ve yet to use them all up!)

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll be back in a couple of weeks to share another project featuring SRM Stickers products!

  6. Shery – your love for you niece shines through your post and this layout you’ve created! She’s so fortunate to have an Aunty S who I know spoils and pampers her to the nth degree! My niece is already 4 1/2 (gahhh….) and while all photos of her make my heart sing, the one of the two of us ‘meeting’ for the first time (she was but a couple weeks old),is my absolute favorite…heart melting and heart-warming! If only I could do layouts as beautifully as yours…on the ‘must do’ list! You’re such an inspiration as a designer, a crafter and, especially, a person who treasures her family deeply! Alexa will love this…a priceless keepsake!!
