In the Air- Mixed Media Layout

Hello everyone,
Aditi here, and I’m back with another fun tutorial post of mixed media for you all. Today, I was inspired by the elements in the CrafTangles Wanderlust elements pack and decided to work around them. The Vintage Hot Air Balloon in particular caught my attention. I decided to create a mixed media layout, but a clean and simple one.

Inspired by the vintage colour palette, I decided to uses the browns, with a little soft orange and linen. This earthy warm palette, worked wonders in my layout today. I used Distress Oxides, along with my favourite CrafTangles Stencils to build my background. I added minimal die cut elements to complete this.

Before I go ahead with the video tutorial, I’d like to remind to all about our current theme challenge- Masculine. We look forward to your amazing projects.
