Mixed Media Background with Tracey Henly
I always start with a 12 x 12 sheet of chipboard.
Then using matt gel or your favourite glue add some texture to the background with ribbons and mesh. Remember with this technique it does not matter what the original colour of any of your pieces are as we are going to change it.
I then added more texture with a template and some whipped spackle and then let it dry.
Once this is dry add some chipboard, metal charms or any accent that compliments your layout. I use helma 450 for my glue of choice.
Once everything is dry paint white gesso over everything and let it dry.
With this layout I used Lindys stamp gang sprays and some of he new prima alchelmy acrylic paints.
I put the prima flowers on last as they were really beautiful as they were, so I didn't need to paint them to match the layout. I actually chose my colours to compliment the flowers.
