Beautiful Mixed Media, Textured Layers To Let The Eyes Wander

Beautiful mixed media, textured layers that let the eyes wander around this handmade card by Debby Hughes.

Firstly, let me say thank you for the resoundingly positive response to my Genetic Haemochromatosis story. You guys really are the best and I couldn’t wish for better support. OK, on with a card post and I have another mixed media card for you today. I started a bunch of backgrounds off recently; First, I taped a few pieces of card to boards and started adding layers of watercolour paint as I went about my day, letting them dry and do their thing without being fussed over.

Then, I added a bit of collage with old book papers and followed that up with fibres in the form of Tim Holtz Mummy Cloth. Once that was dry, I added more layers of paint and also I drew pencil squiggles along with charcoal ones too. Next came the Crackle Paste smeared in a few places over the paint. Not happy with leaving things alone quiet yet, I rubbed some Crooked Broomstick Distress Crayon into the crackle texture to showcase all that texture.

Once I’d got all the background details in place, I added the Peony and Leaves die cut from Ivory card and held it in place with Gina K Connect Glue. I finished off with a sentiment strip from the Reverse Sun and Moon set added over the top with foam tape. Next, I randomly rubbed Multi Medium Matte over the piece and sprinkled on Distress Mica Flakes. Finally, I finished off with a few Eggshell Pearls.
