Mixed Media Collage

This fortnight the current theme is Kraft Card, over on the PaperArtsy blog.

I love to use Kraft card, love the earthy feel and texture. It also takes various products to great effect whether it be acrylic paints, dry mediums.

Started off by experimenting with some Infusions and Distress Oxide re inkers.

This led me on to play on a larger piece of Kraft card. Love the interaction of the Infusions and Oxide re inkers.

I used the leaf stamp from Lin Brown ELB34 set of stamps by PaperArtsy.

I used some silver foil packaging from some biscuits!!

My substrate is an old cardboard envelope, love the irregularity of the shape, and left the air mail sticker!!


  1. Ah Bryan, your colour choice is perfect. I love those blues on Kraft. I've not tried infusions with oxides, I like those dark moody results you have there. This is a great piece of art and I also like the photography with the horseshoe!

  2. The infusions in the reinkers is wonderful!!! Way cool idea!!!

  3. Wonderful, great composition!

  4. So much interest, so many contrasts. My eye is drawn to the curcles and then travels happily around all the elements. Great experiments too. 😀

  5. Love the blues on the kraft !
