I started with tearing up some designer paper from The Paper Studio and gluing them down with Mod Podge. Then I added some texture using stencils and modeling paste.
Using mostly distress inks, dyes and paints and a few spray inks here and there, I added color where ever I wanted.
Added a few die cut flowers, stems and swirls and then decided to add a few words as a title. the Dream and believe are made using Memory Box alpha's that I cut out of black cardstock. The "You" is a stand alone die that I think is from SSS. The ampersand is from PTI.
To finish things off, I added a butterfly cut out (Memory Box) and a corner guard embellishment from t!m holtz.
There are no rules with Mixed Media and for a person like me that is a huge challenge. I tend to like things clean and simple, especially in card making, so this is kind of fun to let my creativity just fly.
I just bought a new journal and I'm going to try do some art journaling. Wish me luck in between making cards of actually getting one done.
I'd appreciate any feedback! Thanks!
