Let’s get messy with some fun mixed media from the Vicki Boutin line. Adding texture and punches of color is a great way to experiment in your scrapbooks and craft projects. We’ll be using some mixed media crayons, modeling paste and a bit of glaze to create an artistic project that’s loads of fun!
Mixed media doesn’t have to be complicated or time consuming craft project - it should be easy, fun and a bit messy! I started with a simple stencil technique and some modeling paste to create this super fun textured background. A wash of color was added with the Vicki Boutin crayons to really make that circle pattern pop.
Notice how the texture from the stencil compliments the Thicker title. You almost can’t tell which is mixed media and which is faux. They look like they were created the same way. Layering the title just over the edge of the circle pattern ties the design together.
The photo is given a bit of pop with layers of die cuts from the Vicki Boutin Mixed Media collection. A simple bubble star from Shimelle adds a splash of yellow color and really makes that photo shine.
To add bits of words, use the mixed media strip stickers from Vicki Boutin. These add a sentiment and some meaning to the artful page. By stacking them together it creates a nice solid block that balances out the design.
The next time you think art - grab the Vicki Boutin collection for a bit of mixed media fun. It’s a lot easier than it looks and it’s fun!

Welcome to the American Crafts blog. It's me, Sandra Dietrich and I had the pleasure to create with the beautiful Star Gazer collection by Dear Lizzy as today's guest designer. I really enjoyed using the versatile and fresh patterned papers and the cute embellishments for the projects I would like to share with you. Let's have some fun with Star Gazer!
First up is a 8.5 x 11 scrapbook page titled 'Love us'. I really like the background paper with the fun pattern in combination with the most recent photo of my son and me.
I arranged different embellishments around the photo to make the page look fresh, friendly and colorful.
And I absolutely love the large white chipboard word as an eye-catcher for this scrapbook page.
The next project with the Star Gazer Collection is a mini album titled 'wonderful'. The mini holds our favorite summer memories.
To make the mini album, I cut patterned papers and white cardstock to the size 3x4 and punched holes on each page. Two small pink ring binders hold the album pages together. On one of the pages, I added a cute little garland with fuzzy-cut patterned paper, some pearls and sequins. I also used transparency foil to make pockets filled with confetti. And I stamped on vellum paper and added some fabric to decorate the pages. Here is a peek inside the album.
Thank you for stopping by today. Have a wonderful day!
