Here is a mixed media layout I made last month...
I used modelling paste, gel medium and mica powder through a Finnabair stencil for the background. I mixed the gel and the paste together to give a slightly more translucent finish to the paste then roughly mixed in some mica. I didn't want my butterflies to be evenly yellow, rather that they would be several different shades. And of course the mica plays with the light so they twinkle and sparkle beautifully.
I pulled out papers from my scrap folders and layered them up with tissue and vellum. Once I had my stack of papers and my yellow background it felt like it was missing something punchy. I grabbed my black fineliner and doodled on the papers and the background - and through the stencil too, outlining some butterflies and adding more, overlapping some of the yellow butterflies.
I went for a solid and bold foam alpha for the title and added splashes of black ink and a handful of black enamel dots.
I kind of love this layout. It pushes my style, and probably borrows a lot of other peoples styles too!
