Dinosaur by Sandra Scott

Hi there fellow crafters, Sandra here today to share a layout created 
with a gorgeous range by Echo Park - Dino Friends 
available at The Shop and Crop Scrapbooking store.

 I started by trialing my stencil with gesso mixed with acrylic paint, then paint by itself.  I preferred the paint without gesso.

I layered some black cardstock at an angle onto a patterned paper before starting my photo matting layers.
The tags are made with scraps of the patterned paper with a couple of the collections brads and some twine and the cluster on the bottom right is made up of stickers from the sticker sheet.  I loved how well these went together to form a nice bright cluster with the title.

If you don't have a stencil like the above you could use the side of an old loyalty or credit card dipped in the paint. 

The products used on this layout are:

Echo Park Dino Friends Patterned Paper and Sticker Sheet; #DF102011, #DF102012, #DF102013 and Sticker Sheet #DF102014
American Crafts Cardstock
Echo Park Brads
Acrylic Paint
TCW Stencil; #TCW456S

Now for the second layout I was able to create with this fabulous range, no mixed media on this one but I love the look for using multiple photos.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to create the title for this layout before backing it with the patterned paper from Echo Park.  The only things used from my stash were the cog and stamp set from Kaisercraft, seen here on the top right of the layout.

I hope I've given you a hint or two today, thanks for stopping by the
