I have a fun no-mess way of doing mixed media and I wanted to share it with you. I've shared many of these tutorials with you in my Workflow Wednesday series and today I'm going to share how I put them all together in my mixed media pocket style weekly pages. Are you ready to have some fun?
WEEK 29Here's a photo of my completed page! I'm going to walk you through what I did for this.
First, I'm going to open up my hybrid print templates in Photoshop and start dragging and clipping journal cards and/or paper. I like to open the three-6x4 template and the four-3x4 + one-6x4 template. That way I can work on putting together all the cards for my page before printing.
Second, I'll blend some of the papers to some of the journal cards. I especially love to use painty papers to make it look like the journal card has been painted rather than a solid color background. Also, in the upper left corner card I used a black painted paper and clipped a pink cardstock paper to it and then changed the blend mode to linear dodge to make it look like a pink painted paper. The bottom right corner had a solid cream background and I clipped the yellow painted paper to it and changed the blend mode to "darken" to make it look like it was a painted background.
Third, I'll start adding digital paint brushes and elements to the cards. I added digital stamps and brushes to every one of the cards. YUM!
Fourth, I printed and trimmed the cards out. I then adhered the photos to the cards. Next, I print and cut some elements using my Silhouette Portrait. I'll show you how to do this next month in my Workflow Wednesday series. I adhered them to the cards also.
Fifth, I add my journaling using my favorite pens which I'll share with you next week, Wednesday.
Sixth, I doodle, outline and underline and just have some fun playing with my favorite pens and highlighting some of the elements.
Have you ever tried digital mixed media? Have you ever wished you had a clean way to do mixed media? I hope this gives you some great ideas on how to turn your digital pocket pages into digital mixed media pocket pages.
