Technique Tuesday Mixed Media background

Welcome to another Technique Tuesday – creating inspiration using techniques that you can replicate easily at home. Today I am sharing a quick way of creating a messy Mixed Media background on white cardstock. This literally takes a few minutes to make and the outcome is fun and spontaneous.

Products used
Enchanted Collection: P2791 Utopia, White cardstock
KC Products: CT966 Collectibles, Purple Ink Pad, SK812 Sticker Book
Other: Book Paper, Buttons, Brads, Rhinestones, Star confetti, Thread
I created the easiest background using my ink pad and mists. Lightly swipe the ink pad over a sheet of white cardstock in a selected area.
Then use your Lavender Kaiser Mist to add splats over the ink.
Assemble your layout and then add more splats if desired.
Adhere your matted photo onto a piece of patterned paper and old book paper.
Then add flowers and other elements from your Collectibles packet.
Use foam tape to raise some of your elements for dimension and interest.
Add a tab sticker from your sticker book flush with the top edge of your layout.
Add 2 strips from your sticker book and finish off with sewing and rhinestones.
I hope you are inspired to pull out those ink pads and create some fun, quick and easy backgrounds for your next project.
