February 2024 - Challenge #1 - Make It Messy!

 Have you been creating with your kit? If not, I hope a challenge is the motivation you need to pull it out and start playing!  

One of the fun things about the NJFB kits is the inclusion of mixed media products! There’s a spritz in the main kit, plus additional goodies in the Essentials add-on kit. As a reminder, here are both the Limitless kit and the Add-On Essentials for November Rain. 

So, break out those mixed media goodies & make it messy by using at least two different mediums on your project! 
 First up, we have our talented Guest Designer sharing her layout for the challenge!

GD Jessica says this about her layout:

I thought to create an ink smooshed background with my die cut tags! 

I used a mix of blue Distress products with the plaid stencil by Vicki Boutin and brightened things up with gold stencil butter, gold sequins and gold metallic cardstock! I built layers on my background using the elements stamp set from Stamperia.

I really liked the “ALL BOY” Acrylic Embellishment by Paige Evans so I designed a similar style in Cricut Design Space for my title. I also cut out the number 3 in the same style and a few little pennants to use as a banner. 

I had such fun participating in this challenge! You can watch the full process video of how it all came together on my YouTube channel. I hope you were inspired to add a little mixed media to your projects. Follow me on Instagram and my website for more inspiration, techniques, and freebies. Thanks for having me!

Master Forger Tara says that playing with mixed media is one of her favorite things to do! For this layout, she used a sketch created by Rochelle Spears for her kit club:  The Scrap-Room.  This layout features photos of MF Tara and her little sister being goofy!

Master Forger Tina loves to play with the things that make a layout a bit messy. Using both Lunar paste in a stencil and some Distress ink for splatters she created this layout:

Master Forger Brandi loves making a big mess playing with all sorts of fun products! For this layout, she used a crackle mousse from Nuvo through a stencil, along with a mix of Distress Inks. She finished off the background with a few splashes of Distress Oxide Spray. Lots of layered embellishments complete her layout. Check out close ups on her Instagram here.

Master Forger Vikki is one of our brand new team members! Please give her a warm welcome as she shares her first official layout for us! She played along with the mixed media challenge by using a brayer with Distress Inks and stenciled with texture paste. 

We're also welcoming Master Forger Jody to the team today! For her messy layout, she used Distress Inks, Oxides & Sprays, as well as some Nuvo Mousse in Indian Gold.
