Mixing Mixed Media and Scrapbooking

I am a bad, bad blogger!!!  I won't bore you with how busy I've been, blah, blah, blah.......... From now on, my goal is to do at least one or more entries per week.  However, I have been busy creating and I would like to share some of my summer work. 

Lately, I enjoy incorporating mixed media techniques with scrapbooking.  My favorite thing to do is to add dimension by using molding/modeling paste through stencils to sturdy watercolor paper cut to 12 x 12 size so the finished product fits into a page protector or frame.  I used this technique in the following two layouts:   



I add lots of gesso, sprays, paints, even hot glue, and let everything dry completely before I add my photos and embellishments.  

Stay tuned for a tutorial on this technique in the near future!
