Prom Night - Mixed Media Layout for Love My Tapes

Hello blogging friends!  I am sharing a washi tape mixed media layout on the Love My Tapes blog today. Did you know that washi tape is a fabulous way to add layers on a mixed media background. On my layout I layered pieces of torn paper and washi tape, then added some gesso, modeling paste, and inks. Take a look ...

That's my niece in the photo. Isn't she gorgeous!! I couldn't wait to scrap this fabulous picture. 

Here is a closer look at my background. The washi tape I used had text on it. Do you see it? The torn paper and torn edges of the tape give my layout a grungy feel. That chipboard piece is from Creative Embellishments. I LOVE their chipboard. I painted it with gesso then inked it with VersaMark ink and added some shabby blue embossing powder. The embossing powder was heat set until it melted, giving it a little shimmer, perfect for Prom.

I am linking up with the July Creative Embellishments and the Paper Wings Productions joint challenge. Here is the July photo prompt ...

My inspiration was those gorgeous blues and those flowers. The other rule is that you must emboss something (dry or heat). I chose to emboss my chipboard piece.

Have a great week!
