Welcome back, my crafty friends. I have some great projects to share with you on this beautiful fall day, so sit back, relax, and let’s have some fun by letting the creative therapy begin!
Mixed media is a lot of different things. It can be art pages, tags, alterations, canvases, and many more types of projects. So today I wanted to share this wonderful fall mixed media layout. To create the background of this layout, Shizuka uses torn paper and adheres it to the background paper. She then covered the paper with gesso and added some texture using a stickable stencil. To give it a finish and shine she added some gold glimmer mist. Shizuka used several sheets of paper to give the layout thickness and a chipboard look and feel.
The photos are the stars of this layout. I love the way the embellishments complement and coordinate perfectly with these adorable photos. This is such a stunning layout with the colors, the texture, and all of the layers. A big thank you to Shizuka for her wonderful inspiration. I know you would love to have all of the techniques that Shizuka used, so let me escort you over to BoBunny’s blog where you can see the steps to make this masterpiece layout. You will truly be inspired!
