Scrapping4funChallenge #98 - Different Techniques

Yay!! I am so excited to be part of a new team! Scrapping4funchallenge ! This is my first piece for there latest challenge #98 - Different Techniques sponsored by Fabrika Fantasy  

I decided that after some time away from scrapbooking i would have a go at the mixed media style that i have been working with on other projects. Ive taken a few progress shots to show you how i went about it.

I took some light white gesso to roughly cover the card, as this is a light weight card it needs some gesso to make it with stand the ink and sprays I'm going to use.

Also it give some layered depth to the piece.

I then took some copper acrylic paint, silvery grey ink spray, and ultra thick embossing powder.
I used the stencil to emboss some arrow shapes then used the spray and ink to build up the background. I literally just had fun and sprayed flicked and dripped it every where! I also added extra water in places to get the ink to run.

Then i looked at the layering for under the photo, i used doilies and tulle. Various papers and added some tag shapes with bakers twine.i used a stapler to keep them all together. This leaves them to have some 'air' between layers. giving them a more textured effect.
I stamped through the stencil with some black distress inks to give some darker spot to the background. And added a tiny wooden camera.

I added some enamel dots and paper flowers around the layering.

Lastly i added the caption, on some foam dots.

I have really enjoyed making this piece and hopefully the start of many more scrapbooking projects!
