August - Vintage Mixed Media Layout and Video with Kripa

Hello friends,

'You are not old, your Vintage'

This month, my scrapbook layout is inspired by the moodboard at 
I wanted to add a lot symbolism in my layout and 2crafty chipboard had so many pieces that were a perfect fit. With plenty of options, finally here is what was chosen - one Moroccan Swirl, handful of Steampunk gears Small & medium, a frame each from the 6" Circle revolution frames & Cog Nested Frames and the negative of the Leafy Twig Branches.

I find it hard to get rid of the negative of the chipboard once the pieces have been used and try to incorporate them in the layers behind the photograph. But, in this layout, I used the negative of the Leafy Twig Branches as a stencil to paint leaves while making the background. Most of it got covered up, but there are still some visible in the left side of the layout.

All the chipboard pieces were coated with white gesso and then painted on with teal or rust brown colour spray. The flowers on the Moroccan Swirls were left with just white gesso. One swirl has been cut in half and each half tucked on top right and bottom left part of the photograph.

I hope you enjoy the video tutorial.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Happy creating,
