Post 216: Mixed Media Layout- Explore

Hi friends :) 

How are you doing? Any plans for the weekend? I've got a small giveaway running throughout the month of July, 2017 with 2 prizes on offer. (it is open worldwide). In case you are interested, you can check it out here.

I've created a Mixed Media Layout titled "Explore". The title reads, " Every Picture Tells a Story" and the subtitles read, "Travel, discover, explore the past". It is a layout in celebration of exploration, discovery and travel. I've used a vintage photo of the Qutub Minar, which is a famous monument. 

I have used water coloring to create the background and add depth and definition. And then done stencilling and background stamping. Splatter has been created with distress inks. If you would like to see a photo tutorial for the same, it is here

Here are a few photographs of the layout including close ups:-
