DAY IN THE SUN MIXED MEDIA LAYOUT

Good morning, friends! I'm sharing this fun, mixed media, Summer layout using Simple Stories Vintage Coastal papers and embellishments and Polishing Plaster in Dove's Wing from Perfect Paints. I wanted to add some stenciling on white cardstock to create a subtle effect and I just LOVE how the Dove's Wing Polishing Plaster looks through the scalloped stencil.

This medium is super easy to use! Simply tape down the stencil over the cardstock and use a palette knife to run the Polishing Plaster through the stencil.

It's got such a great texture and my stenciled images come out clean every time! And you can apply a heat gun to it, to speed up the drying time.

Here is how I set up my background using the 6x8 paper pad. Sometimes, I like to just a small amount of patterned with lots of pretty embellishments.
