My Summer Scrapping Challenge this week is to work on a Mixed Media / Art Journaling style layout. I was asked to provide more information on exactly what I meant. To me, mixed media style is very free flowing, often colorful and very similar to collage. When I work on a physical mixed media project I use paints, stencils, rubber stamps and paper scraps.
Here are some digi-layouts I’ve created using this style.
For digi-scrapping you can look for kits that include some of these design elements:
- Book Print paper with color
- Paper with splatter
- Paper with handwriting on it
- Paper that looks aged, folded or torn
- Collage-type paper
- Arts-y splatter embellishments
- Overlays and Masks
If you’re shopping at the Forever Digital Art Store, you can search by Style. I found a lot of options searching the Grunge style.
- Designs by Laura Burger
- Jumpstart Designs
- Katie Pertiet
- Across the Pond
Click here to shop the Forever Digital Art Store. By the way, there’s a lot on sale right now at Forever. Anything you can print is 20% off from now until the end of July.
I also have an Art Journaling board on Pinterest. Although it’s more focused away from digi scrapbooking you might find some tutorials and inspiration there. Here’s another post I found from a few years ago that has some cool ideas! And to join the Summer Scrapping Challenge Facebook group, click here.
