Today I have some fun techniques to show you and I created another video of my work in progress, so check that out here:
I love to use old book text in my mixed media projects. In fact, that's all I really use "real" books for anymore now that read books on my e-reader!
The flowers I made on this piece were done with book text, I used stamps, Gelatos™ Colors, and Stamper’s Big Brush Pens all randomly over a page or two I ripped out of an old book and then cut it into varying heart shapes.
Next, I went to my computer. I whipped up some word art to use and made sure I reversed the text so that I could do an image transfer technique with it. I'm even sharing the word art with you in case you want to use it on your project....click here to download the word art! Check out the video to see the technique!
I hope you enjoyed this two part blog post! If you were able to play along with us please leave a link to your project in the comment section below, we'd LOVE to see your work!
