April ’19 Page Kit ~ Erminia

For her layout pages this month, Erminia took inspiration from the Rocky Road Baked Texture embossing powder to make two beautiful mixed media pages.

I love how between the two pages Erminia has swapped the patterned section and ripped elements to make the two pages complimentary. The first page has the patterned section on the top half and the ripped gold peek-a-boo on the bottom, whereas for the second page the ripped segment is at the top and the large patterned block (the train) is in the bottom half.

Since the first page of the two layouts doesn’t actually have any blue in the patterned paper or cardstock, Erminia added it in herself using mixed media products. For this page she used gesso, Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink and Iced Spruce, Cracked Pistachio, and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Sprays. She then added the Rocky Road embossing powder from the kit scattered  over the top to add some grunge and texture (she added this to the second page as well!).

If you look close at the photo mats you can see that Erminia ripped the edges of some of the layers on both layouts. She also place the photos at angles. If you add only one or two ripped edges and leave everything else on the layout at 90 degrees and with straight edges, it can look out of place (whereas ripping everything can make it much too busy). You can balance this by doing what Erminia did in her layout, by ripping edges of just some layers (or just one edge) and placing elements at angles rather than always straight.

Here are the patterns if you want to give Erminia’s layouts a try. Have fun with the mixed media!

  1. I thought I had a photo for the poppy kit that I had purchased from you a way back. Can’t find it and I need something to follow. Can you help me?
