I love the way you used the mica flakes for the crest of the waves. It gives so much dimension. I play with paint on some but I know I have so much to learn about mixed media.
Thanks for sharing and inspiring! :)

Fun page!!! I love how the photos become the background. I love using paints, inks, tissue, and found items. I recently did a page with a few electronic parts from my dads work shop. Just a small resistor and a few tiny metal washers. They blend in well with the silk flowers, buttons and bling.

Unknown said...

I haven't played with mixed media much yet. I really want to try dylusions spray ink.

GREAT layout! Personally, I'm not much of a mixed-media person though I'd love to give it a try. I'm more of a straight ink gal. :)
