Today I want to share a scrapbook layout where I created a mixed media background using inks and a brayer.
I was inspired by the class I took on Altenew Academy – “Irresistible Inking Techniques”. It was so easy and fun and definitely you will get a different effect each time.
On a white cardstock, I used my Cameo to cut a tiny dots frame border just for interest. To have a brayered effect on the background, I used inks and mixed them with some water and roll my brayer onto it. I used some Mustard Seed Distress Ink and Altenew’s Coral Berry Ink. It helps to add different colors when one color is dry. I added some paint splatters for a more fun look. For embellishments, I added some diecut flourishes and flowers which I fussy cut from a patterned paper in the Altenew Reflections Kit . For my title, I cut the word “best” and “ever” from a patterned paper as well.
Here is a close up:
It’s always fun to do mixed media backgrounds because the results can be quite unpredictable. Hope you will try it out too!
Thanks for stopping by and Happy crafting!
