"I like creating albums, and not mini albums, but something more of a large size.

However it may happen that you’ve run all of your papers and I would like to share some of my tips how to extend the papers and how to create albums.

 First try to combine papers for one page and even for one spread. You can decide to use the full sheet for one page, but actually you can use some scraps or leftovers that you’ve gut after cutting a few pages . It’s better if they have the same height, meanwhile you can mix them on a width.

You don’t need to have many of the embellishments if you have such beautiful papers as G45. I highly recommend you to start cutting some images or flowers from them. You don’t need to be addicted to fussy cutting, but actually you can save on adding the fabric or paper flowers.

 What I would suggest to make you cut out embellishments not to be plane and to have a dimension - is to use the foam pads or small cardboard pieces to pop up on the background. In that case you will get the layered pieces and they will stand out .

 G45 papers are mostly busy, and you can challenge yourself how to mix them so that they could match perfectly.

So - pay attention to the Patterns and Solids Packs. Also you can add some color cardstock pieces, with no busy background.

 I like adding die cuts to my projects. Of course , if you don’t have the die cutting machine, you still can create the wonderful things with your scissors or ready die cuts from the same collection. However such kind of dies as frames, scalloped borders are perfect for vintage papers.

If there are cards or tags in the collection, you can cut out the frame and use the inserted part for the other page or even at the same page just putting it aside from the cut frame.

 You can even use the pieces with the name of the papers, they all have amazing names.

I hope that my tips were interesting to read and you will fall into the papercrafting as I have done for the past several years." ~Elena

"I'll be at a retreat later this year and I've asked all the participants to swap a page for my mini with me.  Won't that be just so fun and I think I'll have the best mini ever with all that talent in one book from so many people!  I used  the Times Nouveau DCE for my cover and I think the image of the classy ladies is perfect.  I have a "thing" for all the G45 buttons so I've used that as part of my cover too.

I've recorded a video for you of how I made my cover and I'm sharing some inking tips.  I'll also show you how to make your cover more durable, line up your letters, and the easy way to glue embellishments so they stay where you want them." ~Maggi

"Love Tags because they are perfect to make a gift, a special complement for packaging and they can even substitute a card.  I also love to hang them as a wall deco.  This time I wanted to make a special box for them. I used DIY Craft paper to cover a box and beautiful Nature Sketchbook Collection to make the tags." ~Marina BlauKitchen

Tip: Use decoupage glue to fix DIY craft paper on the box and also on the surface of the paper for a more durable finished.

Now, Kathy shares a Mixed Media Steampunk masterpiece! What a gorgeous project: 

Mixed Media Steampunk Tag Album Tutorial  Steampunk Debutante  by Kathy Clement Product by Graphic 45  Photo 35

"Three of my favorite words in the English language are Imagine, Inspire and Create.  When Graphic 45 released their awesome Staples Square Tags with those very words laser cut into them, I was hooked. I decided to treat these tags to a day at the mixed media craft spa.  My imagination and creativity took over and before I knew it, the tag project turned into a mini album filled with Steampunk images, colors and whimsy.  

Paint, stencils, crackle paste, chipboard and embossing powders added all kinds of texture and steampunk vibe to this project.  The tags function as the pages, and although there are only 3 tags, I added loads of fold outs, pockets and surprises to make for a really chunky, interactive album.

The Steampunk Debutante Deluxe Collector’s Edition filled me with inspiration, and I hope you’ll enjoy viewing this mixed media album as much as I enjoyed the process of creating it." ~Kathy

Kathy's Video Tour

Tip: DIY papers are fabulous for mini album covers because you don’t have to piece papers together.  To strengthen the area around the spine, I used iron on interfacing on the inside of the album cover where stress tears might occur in the wake of frequent use.  The interfacing layer is covered by designer paper, so no one knows it is there except you.  But the spine is protected, and that ‘s a good thing!

Tip: To create the dimensional wings on the album cover, I fussy cut around the wing area, leaving the background intact.  Then I lifted the wings, shaped them with my fingers and glued just the wingtips to the album cover.  

Mixed Media Steampunk Tag Album Tutorial  Steampunk Debutante  by Kathy Clement Product by Graphic 45  Photo 33

Tip: I covered everything on the cover with matte decoupage medium to strengthen and protect.  While the wings were damp, I sprinkled them with a little glitter.  The medium dries clear and holds the glitter in place.

Tip: Working with Mixed Media means you have to be patient.  Paints, texture pastes and other mediums take considerable dry time.  Build your cover, fussy cut paper images, create pockets and mini tags in between doing your “wet work.”  

Mixed Media Steampunk Tag Album Tutorial  Steampunk Debutante  by Kathy Clement Product by Graphic 45  Photo 4

Tip: I used altered chipboard pieces to serve fun, funky pockets.  Simply glue down the bottom edge, then tuck ATC tags between the chipboard and paper.  It’s unexpected, and adds to the whimsy of the finished product.

Tip: Use flowers to add texture, color and dimension.  I kept all my flowers in the same general color family to unite the design.

Our Design Team Shares their Graphic 45 #SplashofColor

  Layout  Enchanted Forest  by Elena Olinevich  product by Graphic45  photo6a

We love seeing your #SplashofColor Challenge entries! (Have you entered to win $100 of Graphic 45 goodies? No? What are you waiting for? Find out how here!) Today, our Design Team members show incredible Mixed Media ideas to jumpstart your inspiration. Watercolor, canvases, beauty - it's all here on the blog for you today! See Elena Olinevich and Einat Kessler make incredible projects! First, Elena shares a jaw-dropping'y stunning layout:

Layout  Enchanted Forest  by Elena Olinevich  product by Graphic45  photo6a

"My daughter didn’t like to read fairy tales when she was a little girl. Now she decides what book to read, however she still doesn’t like everything about the princesses.

So I had an idea how to create something with her photo using the Enchanted Forest collection. It has so many fairy heroes and the colors of it is a kind of miracle. And I decided to draw an enchanted castle using the watercolors , to make it more translucent.

I filmed the process of my watercoloring, but I need to say that I am not a professional one, it’s just my attempt to sketch something.

What I would suggest you is to start drawing with watercolors, it’s always easy to change something, if you think you are wrong by adding more water or making the background more blur. Everything you need is only your courage and inspiration." ~Elena

 

Elena's Video Tutorial

Tip: while mixing the color, to avoid creating a mess just pay attention to the colors of the papers or the embellishments you are using. They will determine your choice. Actually you don’t need to mix all the shades of them, but start with 2-3 of them.

Damp the background first with the water. It helps the watercolors not to be absorbed into the paper so fast, and you still have the time to direct them and to mix, and even to remove with the wipe or a dry brush.

I also added the flowers . I wanted to create a spring feeling, as the photo I used was taken during last spring. That’s why mostly all of my flowers are light pink or light yellow. They added the air to the finished composition.

"Mixed media is one of my favorite ways of creating. It’s very forgiving and there is no need for accuracy or fussy cutting. You just need to build layers of color, texture and add a focal point. This project was so much fun to create! I hope you’ll give it a try…" ~Einat

Check out How to Create a Mixed Media Canvas by Einat Kessler on Snapguide.

Mixed media Canvas  Staples  by Einat Kessler  product by Graphic 45  photo 3

Tip #1: Don’t be afraid to use your fingers! Sometimes it’s much better to feel your project and add the paint or any other medium with your fingers. It’ll give you much more control than a brush.


Mixed media Canvas  Staples  by Einat Kessler  product by Graphic 45  photo 3

Tip #2: Use little items to add texture like 3D balls, strings, sandy modeling paste with a stencil or even beads.

"When I saw the Off to the Races collection it bought back great memories of Point to Pointing in the Cotswolds when I was small. We used to have a huge family gathering on Easter Monday no matter what the weather. Sadly I don’t have photo’s from then to put in my album but had great fun mixing and matching the papers to create some fun filled pages. The album can be made with or without the boxed cover and has a full tutorial to go with is if you fancy making one yourself." ~Clare
