Some Mixed Media Using Altamatz


Hello again everyone, Monique here.   Recently, I have been loving using mixed media with my scrapping projects.  Whenever Suzanne sends me a new Altamatz, I always instantly start thinking how I can use texture paste and mist with it.

Here is a layout I have done recently using the 12x12 and the 6x6 random hexagon Altamatz.

Now, these are so new they haven’t been put up yet, BUT this would work just as well with the Cloud Altamatz ALTA026 or the Chicken Wire Altamatz ALTA016.

One think I have noticed when using Altamatz is they are made out of such a lovely thick acrylic.

This gives them such an advantage over other templates for mixed media use, as they don’t fold up as easily, and a lovely thick layer of paste can be applied.

This is the finished layout":



As you can see, I have used texture paste on the larger hexagons, then used some Teal High Heal Glimmermist over the top to add colour.  I also dribbled some of the mist down.  Next I layered down some paper, and used the 6x6 Random Hexagon Altamatz to add another layer of mist – this time in grey. 

Here are some close ups:



I have also used the word “Play” from the Giggle Words Set RWL528.  I have inked it with a Prima Ingveld Bolme Chalk Ink, and then doodled around the outside of the word to give it definition.

Hope you are inspired to get messy with mixed media and give some Altamatz a go!
