Separate the top layer of a patterned paper napkin and tear it into large sections. The thin tissue paper is perfect for this project.
Using a flat paint brush, adhere the torn napkin pieces to wood leaf with Creative Artist Medium in Clear. Creative Medium is a light acrylic paste and can perform a lot like Modge Podge paste for this collage. What makes Creative Medium different than Mod Podge is that it is thick enough to form a stiff structure as well. So if you are using Creative Medium with a stencil then the shapes of the stencil will maintain their shape. Paint the Creative Medium layer on the wood shape first. Then lay the tissue paper down and apply another layer on top of the paper. Allow drying.
Stamp a fall theme saying or sentiment onto the leaves with StazOn Pigment in Piano Black. Use the StazOn stamp cleaner to clean your stamps once you are finished. Since the surface has the Creative Medium layer StazOn is the best choice here. Other ink brands might rub off or smear.
Apply Gold Sheer Shimmer Stix to edges of the leaf. The Shimmer Stix is a dauber top applicator and needs to be shaken well before use. The liquid shimmer should apply much like a marker. Test on a separate piece of paper before applying.
Adding just a pop of color added to a black and white project can be very dramatic. When you use Rinea Foil Paper as that pop of color, it not only adds drama, it adds a level of elegance as well. Black cardstock, Snowflake StazOn Pigment ink and Rinea Foiled paper are the perfect combination for drama and elegance!

When creative inspiration hits me, I am usually creating layers of mixed media designs on frames or cards. But today, I decided to go a different route. Here is my attempt at a clean and simple Thinking of You card. I love using a mix of Tsukineko inks to create a watercolor effect. They are pigment-rich and blend like a dream. See how I made this card!
Today, I share a very simple and fun technique using the irRESISTible Pico Embellisher in a new way. Importantly, I show you how to use StazOn Pigment ink over the Pico since StazOn is perfect on slick surfaces. Finally, I use a beautiful fairy stamp as a silhouette to finish our card project.
It has been such a long time since I have done a scrapbook layout. I really miss doing them! I used several different Imagine products to create the background for my layout; Creative Medium, Fireworks, Delicata, Brilliance, VersaMagic, and StazOn Pigment Ink.
Watch my video below for details on how I created the background for my layout.
