Mixed Media Layout

Hi there! Happy Wednesday! Today I'm sharing a mixed-media layout on 12x12 patterned paper by Basic Grey. I have used acrylic paints, distress inks, archival ink, my gelatos from Faber Castell, white gesso and dimensional glue/paint.

Here I have used techniques such as stamping, stenciling, painting ( with my gesso, gelatos and acrylic paints ) and of course a bit of journalling on the edge of the paper.

Basically, I tore strips of patterned paper ( October DT kit ) and make it as the flower stems. Cut-out the red bloomers and used it singly as a flower to each stem. The leaves are done by stamping on another piece of paper and cut to shape. The 'greens' just below is actually a white gauze soaked in green acrylic paint. Perhaps it represent some kind of a moss.... Hehe...

The clouds are cut-out from the page of an old book - a flea market finds. I have splashed over with white gesso and later add dimensional pearl paint in white.

Don't you just love mixed media?!
Thanks for stopping by!
