Aussie Scrap Source Layout :) :) :)

This week at Aussie Scrap Source we’re looking at ways of incorporating shapes into your mixed media projects and scrapbook layouts – from diecuts and punched shapes to epoxy and Art Parts. 
Check out the inspiration provided by the fabulous design team, [Ive included mine below] and then, send images of your own projects inspired by repetitive or scene-building shapes.

Materials used;

12 x 12 Grey board
Gesso - Mont Marte
Florists vine
Tattered Angels Chalkboard Glimmermist - Chalk and Grape Ape
The Crafters Workshop 12 x 12 Circle Explosion template
Epiphany Epoxy Round buttons
Prima Flower/vine and Alphas

For the shapes mixed media challenge brief I got to create with the versatile Epiphany range of products; and it is these she has taken her direct inspiration from. I chose to use one of the range of self adhesive buttons. The round buttons coordinated perfectly with one of my favourite Crafters Workshop templates.

I took direct inspiration from the shape of these Epiphany buttons and used the circle design to inspire through the whole creative process of my layout.
Using watered down gesso in a mist bottle I first sprayed a combination of funky circle patterns on to my background., and allowed to dry.
Then using The Crafters Workshop circle explosion template and Tattered Angels chalk Chalkboard glimmer mist, I created an 'explosion' of circles over the top of the funky gesso circle pattern.
Before final embellishing this is what the background looked like. After I have attached the photo and embellishments, I shielded my photo with some scrap paper and added some extra splats of colour with the purple chalkboard mist, just using the bottom of the applicator spray nozzle and flicking it on.

I sewed the buttons on using some of the florists vine :).

This is how the background looked after drying. It is just the perfect complement to the Epiphany button embellishments.
Well thats it from me for the mo I do hope you have a fabulous weekend :)
