Caribbean Bandits Mixed Media Layout by Heather Thompson

I would love to share a fun mixed media layout I made for 7 Dots Studio. This was a fun photo op on our recent trip to the Caribbean. My good friends Maggi, Jen, Nick and I took an off road UTV tour on the beautiful island of Aruba. And yes Aruba is a desert island, hence the face gear. I love this photo, it feels like we’re some crazy bandits raising havoc on the beaches of the beautiful island.

I love the Lost and Found Collection and I thought the colour palette of the paper would be perfect for the composition. I used various stamping and background techniques with pastes and mediums to get the background before the layering process I normally go through.

Enjoy the close-ups.


I made a video of the creative process.

Thank you for stopping by today. Until the next crazy adventure!
