Mixed media is very popular out in the greater crafting community, And I have not really tried it much. It seemed a little overwhelming to me and I have
to admit the messy nature of mixed media was not that appealing to me. But I have jumped in and bought a few supplies and gave it a go.
Of course I had to combine it with my first craft love, that would be all thing Graphic 45.
I created a Memo Book using typography one of my favourite
collections from Graphic 45.
Well here is the finished product. I love the background, but I think I still have a way to go in the mixed media world.
The supplies I used for the background were a lot of fun to try and while I did not really know the techniques I watched a tonne of you tube videos and applied the knowledge the best I could.
These are things I used for the background :
Finnabair texture past white sand
Jo sonja texture paste
Jo sonja burnished copper acrylic paint
Tim Holtz Distress paint barn door, vintage photo, pumice stone
Perfect pearls blue patina
Here a few more different angles. This project has a lot of dimension and depth.
The Graphic 45 products that really make this project are from the Typography collection.
I love the themes and colours in this collection.
Graphic 45 Typography 12 x 12 paper pad
Graphic 45 Typography 8 x 8 paper pad
Graphic 45 Typography chipboard
Graphic 45 ornate metal key holes
Graphic 45 stamped metal brads
I will definitely be combining Graphic 45 and mixed media again. I hope you have
enjoyed this project and it has given you some inspiration. I would love to her your thoughts in the comments section.
Happy Paper crafting
