Read the Step-by-Step Guide Below:
After choosing all my letters, which all came from different kits, I placed them on thick card stock. After deciding how you're going to place them, put them aside for now.

Next, get some PVA glue and brush. Using the brush, wash out the areas in your card stock where you plan to paste your letters.
Once your confident that the amount of glue is enough, you can start sticking down your letters.
As you can see, I've pasted the letters down in a bit of a mixed-up, unconventional way.
Now, get some free-flow liquid acrylic paint. I mixed the acrylic paint with a bit of PVA glue.
After the color is completely perfect, I'm going to paint over the top of my letters and the entire card stock.
Paint by sections. Before moving to another section, get a paper towel and rub off some of the excess paint. This would lighten and give a faded effect to the paint, but also reveal the letters—highlighting the beautiful texture.
Done layering it all up! However, there are some areas that deserves to stick out more. As you can see, the darker letters look awesome, but the lighter ones are a bit lost under all that paint.
I'm experimenting with some black paint to bring out those hidden letters. As you can see, adding a bit of black to the letters definitely helped in bringing it to the surface.
To finish up, let's use some of my letters here. I'm using a white one to add a bit of a bright element to the entire layout. I'm using my stickers to add a Halloween title here.
My photo sits perfectly on the corner left.
This is a really simple way to use some of the letters that you may have from different kits. That's what's beautiful about this tip, it shows us that we can use any kit and mix them up. It's perfect for those who have a lot of leftovers on their scrapbooking stash!
So there's a little mixed media layout! All the materials I used should be easily found on your possession already! Hope you enjoyed the tip, until next time!
