Our fabulous Nifty Gal, Sanna Lippert's latest and greatest creation is called 'All Rolled Into One'. This eye catching artwork uses some of our Nifty packs namely 'In Silhouette Vol.1' and 'Makin' Marks V.2 Brush Set' which are handy mixed media packs available in our store.
When they are combined in a hybrid page you will be amazed by how easy it is to use digital kits to create bold projects just as Sanna has done with this fun mixed media page. Swoon over Sanna's stunning project below and check out her step-by-step tutorial outlining some nifty tricks.
'All Rolled Into One'
by Sanna Lippert
HERE IS WHAT SANNA SAID ABOUT HER PROCESS....
When I saw the designs of this mixed media digi pack, I immediately knew what kind of layout I would like to create using it... it had to be something about myself. The bold female silhouette shapes were so inspiring that I wanted to use them as my main focal point in my design.
Creating this page was really fast and easy to do and whilst I was putting it together I had for some reason started singing Alanis Morrissette's song 'I'm a Bitch' ...
So here is what I did...
My first step was to create the design in InDesign by Layering the individual silhouettes next to or over each other relatively symmetrical making sure to balance the bold and more subtle images to create continuity. When I was happy with the overall look of stacking and layering I then printed them with my Epson A3 Color Printer. I added a mat underneath of a bold red cardstock to ground the design and doodled a frame in black to give it a more defined edge.
Using a palette knife I began to add in some more layers of texture using texture paste and Crafters Workshop Templates and also applied some Black Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze in flecks for a grungy effect. Once that dried I adhered resin embellishments to add some contrasted visual content.
I printed out my photos in varying sizes cropped them and situated them on top of the silhouettes making sure to keep them as the main focal point. Lastly, I googled the lyrics of my song choice, printed them out in preparation of fussy cutting the parts I wanted to use in my page.
These packs would have to be some of my all time favourites because they are so versatile and would work perfectly in a number of projects including layouts, cards, canvasses and art journal pieces just to name a few! I hope this really easy step by step inspires you to give hybrid scrapping a go!!!
