Fabulous Fall Mixed Media Layout

Pickled Tink Crafts is a new online scrapbooking store that sponsored us over at Scrap n' Art magazine. Pickled Tink Crafts offers a great variety of products along with some incredible mixed media kits. See how I created this fabulous fall mixed media layout using one of their mixed media kits and showed how I did a photo transfer onto a chipboard coaster piece.

Supplies you will need:

Pickled Tink Crafts Mixed Media Kit

Soft Matte Gel


Color Spray Mists



Cutting Tools

Spray Bottle for Water


Paint Brush

Groove Tool

1. The coaster piece in this kit is a perfect piece to do a picture transfer on. To create a picture transfer, first print a picture onto a plain piece of copy paper. Paint some Prima Art Basics Soft Matte Gel onto the coaster making sure it thoroughly covered and then place the printed picture face down onto the coaster. Firmly press the picture down onto the coaster smoothing it down making sure there are no bubbles and let dry. A heat tool can be used to speed up drying time.

2. Once completely dry, spray with some water and using your finger start rolling off the paper leaving the transferred image on the coaster. Dry the image transfer with a heat tool if it is still wet and then paint with another thin coat of Soft Matte Gel.

3. Distress the edges with the Art-C Groove Tool sander attachment.

4. Randomly spread a thin coat of Gesso with a spatula onto the background paper and dry. Once dry use a stencil and some color spray mists to create some images onto the background paper. Dry once again. Adding Gesso to busy background paper is a great way to tone it down so it doesn't take the attention away from the focal point, your picture.

5. Layer up some different papers and elements from the kit to go behind your picture. Lightly spray some color spray mists on them, distress and ink up the edges of the papers. Adhere the picture on top of the layers with some 3D foam adhesive.

6. Mix some Prima Mica Powder with water and paint around the edge of your picture and paper layers. Cover your picture and flick some of the Mica Powder mixtures onto the background and let dry.

7. Spray the flowers in the kit with some color spray mist and flick some of the Mica Powder mixtures onto them and let dry.

8. Add the flowers to your page and continue to embellish your page with different embellishments from the Pickled Tink Crafts kit.

Here are some pictures of my completed layout.
