Hi, its my turn over at the Helmar blog and I am sharing this mixed media layout of my daughter's trip to Joshua Tree in California.
I decided to try painting my background for a rich bold look. Below are some photos of my process:
Primed my cardstock with gesso
Taped off my page so that I would have a clean border
Mixed my colors to get a rich blue
Painted my base page
Used gesso and Crafter's Work Shop stencil to get my pattern, then dropped some black ink blots
Using Helmar Craft glue to adhere my chosen photos
This page was fun to create and using Helmar made it so much easier. Hope you enjoyed my work today and please stop by the Helmar FB page and blog today.
