Mixed Media Scrapbook Page

Happy Sunday,

I hope everyone had a fantastic crafty week. I haven't been doing much in my craft room this week but I did manage to get one project completed.

My boss sent me a picture, via text, of his newest family member. The tan dog (a rescue) who is loving this photo opportunity.

I thought it would be nice to do a scrapbook page for him so he can put it in his office. I didn't just want to do a plain paper page so I decided to try some different mediums. I gessoed over a printed 12x12 scrapbook paper. Then I used stencils  and modeling paste that I colored with acrylic paint to get some texture. Sprayed some Dylusions Ink in black and brown over more stencils to give it some interest. Added some Inka Gold in copper and pewter colors. Sprayed again with some brown Dylusions Ink and then added some yellow acrylic paint with another stencil to try and pull some of the color from the picture. I matted the picture on a printed scrapbook paper after I added the texture with modeling paste and brown acrylic paint and the inka gold. I then added the fibers around the matte (hoping it would look like the trim around a blanket) before adhering it to the 12x12 base. I stamped some paw prints with brown StazOn up the side. Added it to the 12x12 shadow box and called it done. I'm pretty happy with the way it came out.
