My Creative Scrapbook Step-by-Step Layout Tutorial - 'Catie' Layout {Mixed Media}




Hello again & Happy Hump Day!  Finally time to share
 my tutorial post for My Creative Scrapbook Kit Club
with you.  This month I did a Step-by-Step Layout 
Construction Tutorial that turned out preeeeety long! 

 I guess my pages have QUITE  a few steps LOLOLOL!!


So this is the page we're deconstructing.  Guess I could
 have chosen a simpler one but oh well!  I do love to share
 with you guys as you know!!  So here we go!!!

























And a reminder of what we've been busy creating!
This took me 2.5 hours {my average time for creating
a mixed media layout like this} but I need to allow 
myself 3 hours as I first edit & print out the photo
then I need to clean my stamps & counter & get 
everything put back in it's place afterwards :)



I hope some of you find this tutorial useful!

If you decide to create something similar I'd
love to take a peek at it {and love it just as
much if you linked back to this tutorial post!}
so if you do, let me know so I can come & see
what you've made & give you points out of 10

{haha just kidding about the points!!}

A great step by step tutorial Helen...Every artist seems to have their own way of playing with mixed media. It's amazing that you are able to do all this is 3 hours, which included printing photo and the clean up. Yikes! You must be very decisive. TFS this beautiful page

P/s: It looks complex until you try it that's for sure.

Fab tutorial, I will put it on 'to do' list to try out this one day I find some time to scrapbook again, LOL.

A beautiful layout Helen. I did try the glue and another piece of paper to put my JT layout onto :D it still isn't flat though.. I guess it will be like doing the single layout thing.. I will get used to it. I need to play with the mists... I don't get it right ... practice makes perfect. :D I love that you share the step by step... that does help so much... You clever thing...

Marelize said...

Awesome Helen!! I love your backgrounds and seeing the process happening is amazing!! Don't know how you do it in just a few hours though. Would probably take me days to do ... I tend to 'agonise' over little details. LOL! Thank you so much for sharing your techniques. Loved it!! Love the page too ... totally gorgeous!! ox
