Mixed Media Monthly Organizer Book

Hello Inky Fans, I am here with a Mixed Media Monthly Organizer Book using the Passport Die by Eileen Hull. I want a book to carry with me when I go to the local scrapbook store that has a record of paint colors I own. I don't know about you but I am constantly buying the same colors and leaving the fun new ones behind! 



Here is my project for the month of April- wow time flies! I decided to use the Marabu Acrylic Mousse- Pastel Paste from last month. I wanted to see how it played with Dylusions Paints by Ranger. 



Here is the photo inspiration for this months challenge #47 as well as the explanation. I decided to go with split complement colors- so blue with the splits being yellow-orange & red-orange. 



I started by die-cutting my passport pieces using mat board, then scraping the paste through a stencil by RubberMoon. Once that was dry I spritzed the board using Dylusions Spray. 



I painted the raised portions with Dylusions paint & added some stencil work. In hind sight it probably would have been easier to tint the paste & apply it already colored. 



For the spine I added some stamping using paint. I also hit the high points of my stencil image in copper paint to add a little metallic look.



3 signatures were made using ruled paper. Each signature has a cover made with scrapbook paper. I can always add more paper as I build my lists.



I used hair elastics to hold the signatures. They work perfectly & are just the right color! Thanks for joining me today & I hope you join our challenge on Mix Media Monthly this month!

    1. Thanks so much Cathy! Yes I tried doing the stencil over the image thing, challenge is it is tricky to do with paste...I think it was more a case of being impatient! Hee
