Happy Mixed Media Kit by Olga Heldwein

Now that school breaks are over and those kids are hopefully healthy once again. we are getting back on track as promised. Lots of new kits coming. In fact, there’s so many I rely have no idea how I am going to keep up but we will. Expect about 2 per week.  And we have some fabulous designers lined up.

Today we have a great layout from the ever talented Olga Heldwein!  Olga as you are probably aware is a product designer for some great Polish manufacturer’s that we love and stock.  Her latest paper line through  13Arts pops with bokah marks and bright colors. in her latest kit, Happy, she mixes the beautiful turquoise shades with yellow and black for a full range of depth.

In addition to the great choice of papers, Olga uses several 13Arts mediums which are included in the kit. She uses their Acrylic Gel Medium (a must for all budding mixed media artists), 2 Matte Mists that are such perfect hues for so many projects (the Chalk Amber Yellow can warm anything) as well as a bottle of her Black Splash. The Black Splash covers it all in a shiny way.

Ok enough of my rambling, here is the layout…

Doesn’t that black pop like nothing else out there?

As always I had a lot of fun with this one. Following Olga’s lead, here’s the bonus sample I came up with…

Similar in style but showing a lighter background (yes that is a piece of Epiphany paper from Prima that I have hoarded and saved for the perfect occasion).
