By applying mixed media techniques to chipboard elements you add unique texture and interest to journal pages and other craft projects. This particular journal page combines some of those mass produced decorations with elements I created.
I recently was lucky enough to attend a mixed media class by artist Seth Apter. If you have the chance, I highly recommend taking one of his classes. The class inspired me to tweak a couple of Apter's techniques to make my own mixed media elements.

Before we begin, I just want to note that while I adapt some of Seth's techniques to create my own process, this tutorial does not cover the wonderful techniques Seth teaches in his classes.
