THE MOST BEAUTIFUL JOURNEY


By: Mark Melnick

It's time to travel to Echo Park for the Blog Hop! 

What fun I had creating this Travel-themed mixed media project with Echo Park CAPTURE LIFE Paper Kit and Echo Park CONFETTI Background Stamp. Just use your favorite papers from the kit, some personal photos and add some cool embellishments and voila -- this project will become one of your favorites.

As my French teacher used to say, "Le plus beau voyage c'est celui qu'on n'a pas encore fait."


MATERIALS USED:

Echo Park CAPTURE LIFE Paper Kit

Echo Park CONFETTI Background Stamp

Imagine Radiant Neon Ink

Imagine irRESISTible Colored Texture Spray

Imagine irRESISTible Pico Embellisher


MISCELLANEOUS:

Stretched Canvas, Personal Photographs, B/W negative Film Strip, 
Adhesive, Acrylic Gel Medium

  15. What a great way to highlight places
