Patriotic Week : Mixed Media Monday


We are starting off Patriotic Week with a bang!

I’ve got two amazing Elle’s Studio gals with me today; and we’re getting messy on this month’s installment of Mixed Media Monday!
First up, Elle Price!

Elle-01 For this layout, I started with making the background. I took the Patriotic
wood veneers and put them around my photo, on the 12 x 12 paper. Then I
lifted my photo off and sprayed the areas where the wood veneers where with
white mist. After it dried I lifted the wood veneers off and turned them
over (so the wood side showed, since they were white now on one side) and
glued them back on, along with the other papers and tags, to create a fun
layered look!Elle-02 Elle-03What a quick and easy way to create a unique background! Thank you Elle!

Products used : Saltwater Paper, Love You More Paper, Patriotic Journaling Tags, Patriotic Wood veneers, May 2014 Kit

I used a mask and modeling paste. I added watercolor to the background around the modeling paste.
