Zinia's Mixed Media Frames

Hello everyone! It’s Zinia here and today I decided to play around with my WeR Memory Keepers Frame punch board and Amy’s latest collection “Sunshine & Good Times” to create a fun mixed media layout.

I was looking at my craft supplies and I was really inspired by a color palette from my Distress Oxides. Luckily, those colors were a perfect match with the patterns from Sunshine & Good Times with the addition of some red accents from Hustle & Heart.

I really love the pastel colors of Sunshine & Good Times but if you add an extra bright color it gets really mindblowing.

So after I picked patterns that matched the inks I wanted to use, I cut them into squares of various sizes and then turned them into frames using my WeR Memory Keepers frame punch board.

For the mixed media part I used the inks to created beautiful washes of color around every frame and also to add a few little splatters here and there to fill the empty areas.

I decorated each frame differently but I tried to keep things color coordinating. I used one frame for my photo and one for my journaling. Then I went crazy with the rest playing around with different techniques and ideas.

Since I was playing with inks, it was the perfect opportunity to use the lovely wooden stamps, which are included in the Sunshine & Good Times collection. I used different images for different frames and played around with a few techniques to create interesting effects.

For my red accents, I pulled a variety of products from previous collections and although there are tiny differences in the warmth of my reds, they all worked beautifully together and complimented the whole design.

This is definitely one of the most enjoyable pages I ever created. The process was really fun and I’m madly in love with the whimsical result.

So I really hope you enjoyed this page and you got inspired to create your own unique color palette inspired by your art supplies. Until next time, happy crafting.
