Journaling Image

Journaling on the Quick

Debbie Davis made this background by randomly scraping pink, yellow and blue/green paints that had been loosely mixed with some white fluid acrylic paint onto the ledger journal page using an old store card. She also printed, cut out and collaged the photo, along with two little beach cabanas cut out of scrapbook paper onto the page and she outlined the photo and cabanas with a Stabilo pencil and lightly went over the pencil with a wet brush and finally added some texts using a stabilo pencil.

Melanie shows us how she made this cute mixed media decor pillow. You could keep it yourself, to decorate your home, or even make one as a mixed media handmade gift.
