Hello and welcome to another mixed media tutorial! Today's project is made for the Eileen Hull Inspiration Team and this month we are collaborating with Crescent, using some of their great mat board and papers. We are also using Eileen's new Sizzix flower dies.
I made a mixed media project on a 11 x 14 in Photo Mat Art Board. These consist of heavy mat board with a pre-cut opening for a 4 x 6 photo. You might already know that I love working on mat board, and this was no exception. The mat board holds up to a lot of techniques, as you will see below in my tutorial. I used another photo of Anton from our photo session with Alet Groenewald from Blessed Reflection Photography. It's a pretty typical photo of him, he is up in a tree, with a branch of some sort in his, pretty dirty, hand. He also found a lot of really big pine cones during this outing. I extended the scene in the photo with paint, stamps, stencils and dies.
Thank you so much for looking! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
