Guest Designer- Neha Upreti with a Layout Tutorial !!

Hello everyone!
This is Hussena here, and I am very happy to introduce our Guest designer for the first half of this month and it's the very talented crafter, Neha Upreti! Neha, is a relatively new blogger and a consistent player of the Lulupu challenges. Her work is very fresh and her attention to details, gorgeous! She has been doing an awesome job with Mixed Media layouts and card-making as well, and we are really elated that she agreed to guest design for us this month, and what's more, she's already shared a step-by-step tutorial on how to make a Mixed Media LO. So, over to Neha and here's to what she has to say about herself.

Hello everyone!!I am Neha from Creative crafting. This is my first ever post as GDT on Lulupu! I was so excited and happy when I saw my layout as winner in the sketch challenge. This time I played along with Bingo challenge to create a mixed media layout. I have chosen my elements diagonally i.e., Heat embossing, Ribbons and Mists/sprays. I am also sharing a pictorial for the mixed media layout I made. Below is a detailed pictorial giving step by step instructions

1. Select the picture you want to use for the scrapbook layout
2. Make a rough sketch of the layout as it makes the job much easier.

Spritz some more LSG spray through stencils. (press residual spray over stencils onto paper as it create some amazing patterns)
2. Stamp and fussy cut some images.
3. Once satisfied with the background start layering and assembling the picture and other embellishments. 

Here I have added lace and used torn PPs as base for photograph. Embellish the layout with flowers, sequins, butterflies, ribbon and twine bow, flat back pearls and stamped images. I have also used oval resin frame over a die cut. I also fold the paper at top left corner and added lace and some flowers.
Once all the arrangement and embellishing is done your layout is complete.

I hope you liked the tutorial and found it useful and inspiring.

WOW! Isn't Neha's layout beautiful ?! Thank you so much for this step-by-step tutorial, Neha. The way you have taken so many elements and brought them together so effortlessly resulting in this perfect layout and what a stunning background you have created using Stencils and Modelling paste!
