Record Inspired Layout

Pin It
I am a HUGE lover of music. I will listen to just about anything, but my favorite music is rock.

Last October I got to see the band Anberlin live when they came close to my hometown. I was so excited! They were fantasic live!

I have SO many concert pictures from the many concerts I have been too, but I have a hard time scrapbooking them since not a lot of paper goes with rock concerts.

While doing another layout using DCWV's Mod-Retro stack, I came across this really awesome page that looked like a vinyl record. Anberlin actually released their last two albums to vinyl and I own one.  My brother gave my dad a record player for his birthday, and the sound of a vinyl is so cool!

So that memory along with this paper inspired me to do an Anberlin page.

The gold paper is from the DCWV Tradewinds Cardstock stack. I saw the gold and thought "gold record."

The quote is from the song "Audrey, Start the Revoultion!"

Hope you like my page! Feel free to leave a comment :)

Until next time,

  1. This is so clever and cool! Great idea for using the LP idea for the page! Love your composition too!

    My husband has a music room with over 3000 LPs. He always says that vinyl is much cooler than anything else.

Mixed Media Box

Hello all!!

Today I am featuring a mixed media box that I have been working on for a few days now. 
I had this beautiful little Grpahic 45 book box sitting on my shelf for awhile. I finally decided to take it down and do something with it. I love mixed media and decided to use this box as my jumping point. 

I started out with covering the sides of the box with Finnabair Art Basics modeling paste thru a Tim holtz Stencil. While that was drying I started throwing on all sorts of found things from my collection. What’s so great about mixed media is you can really use anything!
After that was dry, I covered the whole box in black gesso from Art Basics. I followed that with dry brushing some Finnabair Metallique paint in Silver Spoon. I purposely left some black showing thru in places. This gave it an aged look. 

After all that was dry I went to town with more of the Metallique paints, and some of the amazing waxes from Finnabair. Here is the finished results:

I am so in love with how this…

Old Curiosity Shoppe Scrapbook Canvas

Happy 4th of July all!!!

I have spent my day off at my desk, working on another scrapbook canvas. I love to take my scrapbook pages and adhere them to canvas. This way I can see them everyday.

Today I have made one using Graphic 45's Olde Curiosity Shoppe. I used an old photo of my Grandfather from when he was about 12 years old.

I fussy cut several images from the collection along with the chipboard for almost all of the decorations. I also used some of the Tim Holtz Keys, Keyholes, and gears to give it more depth. I also had a silver distressed butterfly left over from another project that I added to this.
Hope you have all enjoyed your Holiday!!
Thanks for stopping By! -AR

Mixed Media Canvas with Art Alchemy and Dylusions

Happy Friday!!

Today I’m sharing an 8x8 Canvas I have done using some of the lovely Dylusions Sprays and Art Alchemy paints and waxes. 
I knew I wanted to use a photo I had taken on my last visit with my best friend and beyond adorable niece (not at all biased right?) I chose to do the photo in black and white as I wanted to use warm tones for the canvas, and the colors in the photo would have clashed. 
I started out with an 8x8 Canvas I got from Michaels. I went with one with the deep sides so I would have more room to play, and I love the depth it helps give to my art. 
I then began using random items from my stash. 

I built the piece up until I was happy with it. 

Not gonna lie, it was quite hard to cover this up!! I may have to recreate it and leave it be next time. 
Then I covered the piece in about three layers of white gesso. 

Once the gesso was dry I began to spray it with Dylusions Spray inks in Cherry Pie, Rose Quartz, and Pure Sunshine, until I was happy with the colors and…
