Mixed Media Fun

Getting into the mess of mixed media is a bit frightening at first, but once you get the hang of it, you will never look back.  If I were forced to choose one way to scrap, I likely would choose layouts with some mixed media.  It’s just so interesting to me how you can create so much completely original art with just a few products.  You don’t have to spend a fortune to start doing some mixed media projects.  You can purchase a basic water color palette at many craft store chains for under 5$.  All you need is a glass of water and a cheap brush and maybe some plastic packaging and you are ready to attack some paper or canvas.  The layout I am sharing in this post has a totally original background.  I used water colors, an acrylic paint dauber, a stencil, and some stamping to create the piece. I also used a circle punch and some sewing.

There is a lot on this layout, but the colors are muted enough that the focus is still the photo, which for me is a must. I still have to add some journaling on to this layout. I haven’t decided how to do that yet. Leave me a comment if you have an idea 🙂

Here is the link to the Process Video:
