Tutorial from Helen Tilbury
Hello again everyone!
HELEN here with you again today, sharing how I put together this simple layout using paper, stickers, die-cuts, tags & chipboard, all from the beautiful “Soulmates” Collection.
First let’s take a look at the finished product then after I will show you how you can put your page together to look just the same 🙂

So get all your products out & ready & let’s go!
I recommend the Prima Sprays because they make splatters very easily – without even having to remove the lid – just pull the trigger only halfway to get lovely big splats.
I also highly recommend the Prima modelling paste from Finnabair as it has a lovely sheen to it & is very crisp but any similar products would do & if you want to add more colours go ahead! I wanted my layout to be very soft & calm so I stuck with only 2 colours.
A big bottle of water with a mister spray is essential to your mixed media kit, to help mix your colours.
I used some 7 Dots Collage Cardstock – Fashionista – from the Domestic Goddess Collection – as a backing sheet to glue my background to as it is so lovely & thick. I use security cable glue as it is so strong!
A tip! I always stick my identification strips to the back of my layouts to save having to look up what paper names/collections I used. I kept my chipboard raw as it is already a very pretty vanilla colour & looked perfect.
Drywall tape is another must-have for your mixed media toolbox. It goes by different names in different countries & can be called Rhino tape, ceiling tape, grid tape…the list goes on! But it is available at the hardware store very cheaply.
To embellish I always use Prima flowers but I save in other ways, by using generic bling dots, metallic thread & paper straws. All products I can buy here in South Africa where scrapbooking stores are few & far between.
And now for some close ups…
So many perfect sentiments can be found in the Soulmates collection.
It is such a pretty line & can go with any colour scheme.
Always add a touch of hand-journaling to make your work personal & unique.
Thank you for coming by today. I hope you enjoyed my tutorial & leave your link here if you make a similar page so I can come & take a look! See you again next month.
