I can't believe that it's taken me this long to follow up on Part 1 of my experiments with mixed media. I simply forgot! Indeed, I've made a couple of projects with those backgrounds since then - see here, here and here. So, I think it's time I got caught up by sharing how I made this card for the UKPC May Swap.
To finish the card the topper was simply matted and layered on to the two shades of blue cardstock then adhered to the front of a white card base.
I can't think why I'd forgotten how much fun it is to make your own backgrounds, especially with the Gelli plate and paints. Messy but great fun. It's just another of the many tools that I've tucked away in an effort to keep this room tidy. Trouble is, to be tucked away is to be forgotten. And there's a lot forgotten in this craft space. Wonder what I'll unearth next.
Take care and have a wonderful day.
