Experimenting with digital mixed media techniques has been so fun for me lately. So fun, in fact, that I’ve had a hard time finding ways to use all of the graphic journal cards I’ve purchased along the way. That was until I started blending them to create different cards! Now I can take the graphic cards I love and give them a mixed media look in just a few easy steps. Check it out!
Step 1: Open a card you want to start with. I usually start with a simple card that’s white based with some black writing or art. On this card by Emily, the watercolor will add to the final effect.
A couple other Pollys have tried this technique too. In this first one, Dalis blended the journal card with a paper to create the funky brushed background.
In this layout, Trista blended a wood pattern paper onto the pinwheel journal card. How sweet is that heart in the wood grain!
Have you tried blending your journal cards and papers before?
