Good morning!

I love making grungy masculine mixed media layouts so it was lots of fun making this one of Ty’s graduation


I covered all the Kaisercraft papers with clear gesso.



I used the circle lattice stencil with texture paste then colored with Elizabeth Craft Designs watercolor paints then used brown ink to grunge it up a bit

 I wet the edges of the strip of paper after I distressed them and rolled the edge.  I adhered it to cardboard to add more dimension






I painted the all the chipboard pieces with the watercolor paints including the distressed grid pieces, large nested rectangles, mesh pieces, and blueberries.


I did some drawing using markers and then added art stones and seed beads to the layout and flowers


Thanks for stopping by
