Mixed Media Mini-Album Tutorial & BLOOMING on the PRIMA blog by DT Stephanie

Hey everyone!

DT Stephanie here with you today and what a surprise to see one of my projects featuring the Phrases stencil on Prima's blog!

You have so many possibilities using these Bloom stencils!

Want to know how I did this mixed media mini-album? Here are some quick steps!

Let's start by putting in front of you what you'd like to be using on your mini-album.

First thing I did was to put a thin coat of heavy gesso on my surface and let it dry.

Next, mists some of your favourite sprays and try to move your covers so that there are drops at some places.

Once everything is dried, apply your stencil on the surface and with a craft knife, put a thick coat of texture paste. Again, let dry completely before the next step.

Don't forget to do both covers!

After that, take out your ink pads and add some colours to the edges. Make sure to go all the way through the binding, or you'll see some spots uncovered and it will tarnish the whole look of the project.

Now, about that Bloom girl...isn't she fab? She's called Sirena and her dreamy look is so versatile. For this project, I stamped her on some colouring cardstock (Cryogen White) and cropped her, so that she could fit behind the resin frame.

We need some patterned papers too...

And here's the whole thing assembled with a piece of trimming. 

The final step is to put it on 3D adhesive and glue the whole thing on your cover. Now, all you need to do is add some embellishments here and there, circle some gems with a black pen, and you're DONE!
