The ombre color schemes and textured paper of the Gradients paper pad by Craft Smith co. is a Mixed Media artist dream!!!
I slathered on 9 layers of mist, paint, paste, and ink. Then I cut a hole in the middle, rolled some Posies paper through and attached my photo. Then I added an assortment of embellishments as well as Embossing Powder, Micro Beads, and a final layer of Metallic Rub.

The textured surface is still visible, the paper has minimal warping, and the layout can be held by one corner without damage or weakness.
I am thrilled to have this paper and will be using it as a base for many mixed media projects!!!
