To soften the page I added some textile elements around each embellishment cluster. I used the Sew Easy system to create the stitched semi-circles and then put some Das Plaster gauze around each slide frame.
The next step was splattering paint spots to tie everything together. I used a mixture of Adirondack Terracotta Acrylic and Charcoal Glimmer Mist. In the close-up you can see the more viscous nature of the paint resulted in nice round dots while the watery mist resulted in a more splotchy look.
Finally I want to share a fun idea for using washi tapes to make little dimensional embellishments for your page. Just cover plain buttons with tape, tear off the edges and use an awl to pierce the button holes. I had a lot of fun creating this layout and hope you'll be inspired to incorporate some mixed media into your next creation.
