Kind Heart/Fierce Mind By Elisa Ablett

Hi everyone, 

My turn up on the blog today with a Graffiti Grunge mixed media boy layout. 

I used black gesso for my base under my photo cluster and embellishment cluster.  

This is a great starter for a mixed media layout. Next layers are different coloured acrylic paint sponged through different stencils to create a layered grungy look. 

Once I had the grungy painted look I toned all the colours and textures down a bit with white gesso layer and also some black stripes using the side of a ruler and black paint. 

The Graffiti Grunge collection is perfect for teenage boy layouts, add a few chipboard pieces, washi tape and wire to complete your look.

Let's take a closer look at the final details:-

TIP- use border strips and torn paper across a larger photo to draw attention to your title and to tie the page together.

Make sure you use texture stamps to add those little touches to your layout!

Stencil in metallic paint on Graffiti inspired layouts to continue the grungy look!
