It's Denise here today with a mixed media page that I created for Mandy's challenge Mix it Up with Mixed Media here.
I created a vintage page of my grandparents. I got this photo from my Aunt at Christmas time and really wanted to use it, as it was so very special! My grandparents were so young here and don't they make a handsome couple!!
I had some embossed papers leftover from my Zeus and Zoe DT kit which I stuck down to the card stock and then added some book page strips across these. I then gessoed everything and then laid a stencil down and added some spray ink. I added some pen lines and stamping to complete the background.
I had a beautiful, vintage tag from Marivic, which was the inspiration for this page, as the lady in the tag reminded me so much of my Gran when she was young. I also used a gorgeous Molossi chipboard title, a beautiful Manor House flower and the fabulous glass accent flower by Art-i-cake.
Initially I was a bit worried as to the colour combination, but in the end I was thrilled with how the colours all worked so nicely together. The combination really added to the vintage feel.
The chipboard title from Molossi, I embossed with copper powder and it really did come out beautifully!
Well I hope this has inspired you to play along! We would really love to see your mixed media projects.
