VIDEO: Color Theories - Yellow // 12x12 Mixed Media Layout Process

June 03, 2017

Hello friends! I hope you're excited for another scrapbooking process video! As you know, I am currently collabing with Ariana from The Crafty Ways on a fun series called Color Theories. This scrapbooking video series is all about tackling the rainbow one color at a time. We attempt to create monochromatic layouts featuring a different color of the rainbow every week. This week we are featuring yellow! So, if you haven't seen the rest of our Color Theory lessons yet, check them out in our playlist

We had to take a short break from the series, but we're back and ready to go! Be sure to subscribe to Ariana and I so you can get a video notification every week! Yellow is definitely not my favorite color, nor one that I find often in my everyday life. Luckily, when we were discussing the series, we decided to group gold into this color scheme as well. Below is my process video for this really fun to make layout!

This layout features a photo from when we went to see Wicked off broadway. I am still very proud of the title on this layout because it mixes so many fonts and it is a play on words. I used a Thickers set, Tim Holtz tiny letter stickers, and a Heidi Swapp wood veneer word to create my title. I absolutely love the contrast the black brings to this yellow layout.

In the background of my layouts I did a little bit of mixed media. This is one of my all time favorite stencils. It is a background stencil actually meant for painting walls by Plaid Crafts. I think this design works for so many different themes and topics as well. I simply used white modeling paste through the stencil to achieve this look. I wanted to have the pattern extend all the way across the page so I realigned the stencil halfway through and continued applying the paste. 

I kept the matting on my photo minimal. I used white and black cardstock to add more contrast against the dark photo. I wanted something that reminded me of this experience as part of the design elements. We went to see the musical at the Landmark Theater which is a historically beautiful theater with gold walls and ceilings and mirrors and chandeliers and it is so majestic. I scattered various bits around in the opposite diagonal direction of the modeling paste to add more interest.

I created a small cluster to the left of my photo using a Freckled Fawn date ticket sticker and a Pink Paislee puffy hexagon sticker.

Here you can see the rest of my title. I included some Tim Holtz tiny phrase stickers to add more interest as well. I also included some Echo Park enamel dots in yellow and black. One thing I would like to mention is that if you're doing mixed media like I did where it adds dimension, you'll want to have several adhesives near by. Adhering this Heidi Swapp wood veneer word was difficult, especially since it overlaps the mixed media.

In this last photo you can see all of the bit I used in the top right and bottom left sections. These items include Thickers foam stars, Freckled Fawn chipboard glitter stars, Pink Paislee puffy stickers, Tim Holtz label stickers, gold Heidi Shine splatters, and of course enamel dots. I hope you all enjoyed this video! Please check out Ariana's as well! We'll be back next week to dive into the green color theory! Thanks for stopping by!
