10 Simple Mixed Media Background Techniques

Hi everyone, Toni here today with a design team project hoping to inspire that mixed media artist within you. I have alot of people tell me they love the look and idea of mixed media, but are just too afraid to try it. Well I’m here today to share with you some very simple techniques that can enhance your scrapbook layouts, greeting cards, art journal pages, ATC’s etc.  Let’s get started. I decided to use Eileen Hull’s passport die for the mini album which would be perfect for a travel or vacation album. The album was held together with jute which was braided and then assorted beads were added. I altered this wooden box to hold the mini album in and because there are so many pages to this book I didn’t photograph them, but I’m hoping you will take a moment to view my process video below to see each technique individually and more photos of the finished pages.

Hoping you give some of these techniques a try.  I encourage you to embrace the imperfections of mixed media and just have fun !
