Just Create.......Mixed Media Place

A lot of the time when I 'create' a page, a layout, a journal page or an off the page project; I do not have a clear picture of how that project is going to end up looking.......it's the 'process' that I love. A lot of what I do is experimental so I really am just 'winging it', lets see what happens, just create.

I love working with faces and I love pattern. This was an experiment to see how an image transfer face would look ( or even work ) applied over the top of embossed card. The results are subtle but can be highlighted with ink and paint.

Metal elements were used to frame the face and painted with Finnabair's beautiful Mica Powders.


Layers of texture and pattern

If you have an idea, just run with it, just create and enjoy the process.
There is a step by step of the process HERE at Mixed Media Place and a full list of all the products used which can be sourced from HERE at Mixed Media Place Store.

Thanks for visiting. Have a happy and creative weekend.
