Happy by Tracey Campbell

 Hello lovely people, Tracey Campbell here today with a fun and funky layout using a few different medias, stamps and metal dies. 

Happy Always

To start the layout grab a piece of 12x12 cardstock to use as the base. Have you seen that Paige has an exceptional quality cardstock in store? It comes as a 350 gms, 12"x12" 10 pack for just $8. I just love the quality and feel of this cardstock - no bleeding through on the back from wet medias. 
Anywhoo back to the instructions; so next up I used a bowl and drew a circle in the center of the base cardstock with a light led pencil. Using a paint brush paint in the circle with Colour Blast Artist Ink in Marine.
Paint the whole circle in.
Cut the bubbles out from the Progress Patterned Paper in the Arty Farty range. 
 Using a thin black marker draw crossing lines running vertical and horizontal across the base cardstock and over the circle. Then using black ink stamp the dotted circle stamp from the Meridian Stamp Set over the lines.

Next using the cross hatch stamp from the Life is Tough Stamp Set randomly stamp the image onto the base cardstock. I kept the images close to the stamped circles and lines.
Use the metal die Honey Comb and Create to cut them out of white cardstock. I cut two Create frames and I used the Honey Comb small center pieces for this layout. Now grab a bottle of Envy Colour Shimmer Spray and spray the Create and Honey Comb die cuts. Set aside to dry.
Once the Shimmer Spray is dry adhere the elements to the base cardstock by cutting one of the Create frames in half so that it can be put on the two separate sides of the layout. Add the photo to the center of the circle where the lines cross over, place a frame over the photo. Stick the bubbles down as can be seen in the photo below.
Putting the finishing touches onto the layout by sticking the little Honey Comb pieces on the page, adding a title, a few black stikers and journaling. For the final tocuch I drew some black lines around the outer edge of the cardstock.
 Here is the finished layout, a fun and funky page that can be used for a variety of themed layouts. It is a good layout to try your hand at mixed media if you are a bit hesitant or a newbie.
Thanks for popping in and I hope that you like my layout.
