More Kraft Mixed Media!

Hello, it is Gloria here again. I had such fun sharing my other "grunge" project with you, that I wanted to make another page, using the kraft cardstock. I confess, I love kraft cardstock. I use a lot of it and think it perfect for mixed media techniques.

My daughter graduated high school this month and she had a few of her wallet-sized photos on the desk. I snagged one and made this mixed media layout for her. I used WorldWin Kraft cardstock as the background. I also used Treasures Pitch Black, and Heritage Black.

I confess that it is really hard for me to create something without using a lot of printed papers. However, the mixed media techniques give such dimension and depth, that I only used a few pieces of printed paper on the project.

I sprayed, stamped, and painted on the kraft cardstock. I also used some modeling paste! The paper held up to all the "wet" very well. I was impressed!

Thanks for looking!

I hope you have a chance to check out all that WorldWin Papers has to offer!

Let's Grunge with Kraft!

Hello, it is Gloria here and once again, it's my day to post. I have more projects to share that I have made for other teams and used WorldWin Papers. (I have been trying to do double duty with my projects for the past few weeks so that more people can see what WorldWin has to offer!)

This is a layout that I made using WorldWin Kraft cardstock as the background. I also used Heritage Black and Heritage White.

I inked, sprayed, stamped, and grunged up the cradstock. I love that the paper din not buckle or wrinkle! I used a bit of Dark Emerald Isle to die cut the vines.

The Heritage White and Black are both great quality paper to work with for layering. And I love that the white is smooth!

Thanks for looking.

Here are two cards I made with WorldWin paper front and center! I made these for my Couture Creations team. They have wonderful dies and embossing folders, perfect for using with WW cardstock!
