Today, I'd like to share a mixed media layout that was part of the most recent Creating Keepsakes special publication, 'Mixed Media, Vol. 2'. Mixed Media is my current love and I daydream (while I should be working) about getting messy with paints, inks, and medium of all types!
I was lucky enough to have 3 separate projects included in this edition, but today, I'd like to share my favorite of the group. (you'll have to grab a peek at the magazine to see the other two) ;)
This layout actually was 'born' from my experiment drawer. For those who have been following me for awhile, you've heard me talk about my experiment drawer. When I want to try a new technique or just play around with some mixed media product, I keep my experiments for a future project. This 2 page layout evolved from one of those experiments.
I wanted to see what type of look I'd get by adding alcohol ink directly on top of modeling paste. The outcome was perfect!
and some close-ups of the alcohol ink and modeling paste goodness!
So next time you are experimenting with new product or trying out new techniques, don't toss your experiments. Keep them for a future project! They just may be perfect for it!
