Layout with Mixed-media touches

Hello, this is Anupama Choudary with a tutorial on building a page with a touch of mixed-media. The completed page looks like this -

 This is Eila Sandberg from Sweden, a dear scrapper friend of mine :)

First, on a patterned paper of your choice, stamp and mist randomly. There is no right or wrong way to do this. We are only trying to build some texture here. I used gesso, distress inks & chalks on my acrylic stamps for a variety of looks.  

Then, I tore up the treated paper into strips of different sizes and started layering them on a background pp. (I eventually did not use the felt flower).

I embellished the page with a doily, journaling chipboard, wood tile and Prima packaging. I also smeared gesso here and there to add interest.

On the bottom right hand corner, I added a fussy-cut pixie from the earlier pp. A bit of misting, inking and scrunching up to add depth. I affixed the title and a glass pebble.

Some Prima blooms to finish the page and page, Sweet Eila, is ready!

Hope you found this post informative enough to add touches of mixed-media to your own pages.
Happy scrapping and have a great week!
