Olga's Mixed Media Layout Tutorial with the July Kit

Hello everyone! Olga here today. I want to share how to make this mixed media layout with the July Kit. Paper from Tim Holtz just made for such fun work!

I choose a piece of paper for the page and painted it with white gesso in the places where there will be all the decorations. Then I placed the embellishments and picture onto the page, but did not stick, simply defined their place.

I applied texture gel over a stencil onto the dry gesso. Then, I choose a few red colors of spray for a bright background.

Then I added stamping with archival black ink and a bit of Scotch paper tape to the background.

Now I pasted all my embellishments and stickers down. I added the alphabet from the Moxxie Cork Alpha Cardstock Sticker Sheet.

In some places, I put ink for embossing, generously sprinkled copper embossing powder over the ink, shook off the excess with a broad brush, and heat set.

The final part of the work - splatters of mist and I used Glossy Accents to attach sequins.

Thank you for your attention! I hope you find this tutorial inspirational! If you are interested in the July Kit or Add-Ons a limited amount of kits are available for purchase from the C'est Magnifique Store while supplies last!

Guest Designer Terhi Koskinen - Part One with July Kits

Hello, I'm Terhi Koskinen from Finland and am honored to be here with you as a Guest Designer for July. I have two projects to show you today, both include a process video, but let me tell you something about me first.

Scrapbooking is more than a hobby for me, it's a lifestyle - it starts with a photography session and ends when I get my creation where I want it. And then it starts again. My style is modern, fresh and simple, and my creations always have lots of layers with different medias, matching colors, straight lines and touch of something shiny. Also lots of textures and something soft too, like my favorite thing thread.

I get my inspiration from pictures I take during the day, in another words from my everyday life: I'm mother to two beautiful daughters, wife to my handsome husband and studious planning assistant in my daytime job. In addition to crafting, I horse-ride, so that's one more topic for my creations.

I got to play with July Mixed Media Kit, Paper Add-on and Flower Add-on. The July Paper Add-on was filled with blue and red, and even though I usually try to avoid bright red it really got me inspired this time! I used a lot of red flowers, and I hope you watch the process video below - there's a really fun background technique to add texture on to any of your projects! All products other than mediums and white cardstock are from C'est Magnifique July Kits.

My second project was to alter the Tim Holtz box we had in the July Mixed Media Kit. It was so much fun and it took me a lot of time to paint it the way I wanted - then again, it's all about creating, right? All products other than mediums and gold paint are from C'est Magnifique July Mixed Media Kit and Flower Add-on.

I hope you liked the projects I've done - but wait! More inspiration is about to come. This post was based on the color red, but the next one is all about blue. So stay tuned for more.

Thank you Deonna for having me guesting here - loved your July Kits!

Dana's July Kit Projects

Hi! Dana here today sharing the projects I created with the C'est Magnfique July Kits. I had a blast working with the Tim Holtz Correspondence collection. I used items from the Main Kit, Flower Add-On, Embellishment Add-On and Mixed Media Kit for each of my projects.

The B-sides of the Correspondence collection have a wonderful mix of small prints. I love the subtle red polka dots!

I played up the red background color by adding bright red flowers and ribbon.

I had fun with a neutral color palette for this second page. I flipped the fun red specialty Anna Griffin paper from the Embellishment Kit over and placed the white side up to make a decorative photo mat.

I used the chain from the Blue Moon jewelry kit to show the flight path and secured it to the page with small heart brads.

My favorite element from the Correspondence paper pad are these gorgeous red flowers. I used the stencil from the Mixed Media Kit with gesso to add a subtle print to the background. I embellished several of the stars with dots of Liquid Pearls.

For my last project, I created a purse for my daughter from the blue jean pocket and denim strips from the Embellishment Kit.

I attached everything with hot glue so this project came together quick and easy!

I hope you have enjoyed my projects! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I have one more layout created with this kit to share for the July Sketch Challenge. I hope you'll stop by again on the first of the month for the sketch reveal and inspiration from the Design Team!

The July Add-Ons and the Mixed Media Kit are available for purchase now from the C'est Magnifique Store. The July Main Kit will be available on June 30th.
