Friends, Today am sharing with you all a mixed media layout inspired by gabrielle pollaco's "imagine" LO. I followed her step by step but slightly modified the LO.  Since I dint have many materials for mixed media I used recycled materials to create this LO.


Initially I cut a piece from packaging cardboard and covered it with canvas paper.

I randomly stuck some pieces of advertisement papers. 

Diluted alcohol inks with water and sprayed them using mini mister. Applied homemade texture paste using a stencil cut out from an old basket. 

All the above embellishments are cut from cereal boxes. 
Then made the under water creatures using white air dry clay and coloured them using pearl paints.

Glued all the embellishments and distressed the edges using red and black inks. The blue stone like embellishments are using hot glue gun and blue paints. I wrote the title using black marker.
