Mixed Media Painting

Today I’m sharing my latest design team project for The Crafty Scrapper – a fun and easy mixed media project. I started with a sheet of the new Tattered Angels Mixed Media Origins printed papers. These papers have a sueded texture that is perfect for layering inks, paints, sprays, dyes…. You name it! They also have several gorgeous designs to choose from, which will help your project look like a professional masterpiece!

I used the Nature pattern for my background. I painted it using a mix of watered-down sprays from Dylusions, Tim Holtz, Perfect Pearls, and even Tim’s Distress Markers.
