Mixed Media background with doodling

Hi Lindy’s lovers,

I’m back today to share a step-by-step video on how to create a mixed media background with ink sprays, magicals, embossing powder, stamps and drawings. I love mixing my spray with different techniques to create spectacular and unique layout backgrounds. You can use the same thing with an art journal, card or whatever. I use a simple pen, but you can use an archival pen too.

Basic Process

  1. Use a watercolor paper
  2. Choose 1-3 in spray, 1 embossing and 1 magical in the same tone
  3. Use the palest colors first and the darkest after. Blend the color with water and brush and dry at the same time.
  4. When it's dry, you can use the magical and pen to add texture with your doodle lines
  5. It's very important to follow the "wave" and to not put it everywhere. Create a movement in your background
  6. At the end, add another texture with a mixture of embossing powder and gel medium on a stencil. I love this effect, it's very special.
  7. You can add some stamps to finalize

"Promenade en nature"

Hi everyone! 
I'm back today to share with you another layout with the fabulous Dusty Attic chipboards.

I was inspired by the Mixed Media and Art moodboard of the month.

 

I used "Leaves" stencil to create my background with 3d Gel medium and Lindy's spray ink. I drew some leaves here and there with an archival pen.






 I added some plain "wood slices" and the small clock from the set "Winged Keys" to add a natural look. 




I embossed "Industrial Borders #1" with Lindy's embossing powder and added a touch of Dusty Attic acrylic paint.




Materials used:

Hi Lindy’s lovers,
I’m back today to share a step-by-step video on how to create a background with a lot of Lindy's embossing powders. I used several colors to create a beautiful background with flower stamps. Lindy's have a huge selection of powders for all styles.

  2. Choose 5-6 embossing powders and stamps that you need
  3. Use versamark to stamp on your background
  4. Emboss 1 color at a time and use a brush to clean the surface each time
  5. You can superimpose your stamp to create a depth
  6. At the end, add some embossed leaves to finalize your layout
