Photos onto Patterned Paper - Pt. 2

Just sharing some close-ups of my other project from last week's video - Printing Photos onto Patterned Paper. Here I used the same technique as before - a light coat of gesso (or acrylic paint) over patterned paper and then printed my photo - this time, I made the photo a little more graphic and cut it into a tag shape.

Lots of yummy Crate Paper, here.....from Restoration, Paper Doll and School Days. I love mix and match!The hybrid elements are from Parisian Anthology by Hof3. I love the look and dimension it adds layered over the splattered paint.

A detail shot of the photo:

I printed another photo onto a transparency to give this a translucent effect. And some random machine stitching to hold a few things together.

All in all, a successful combination of mixed media and scrapbooking, I think. :) This makes me really happy as that is something I am trying to work on.

Have a great rest of your week!
