Sanna's latest creation called 'Hohe Wand' uses our 'Core Radiance' collection a very motivational kit for those of us that need a little nudge to get moving. Sanna is sharing with us this awesoem hybrid tutorial so easy to try yourself even if you don't have a lot of digital know how you too can create a master piece like Sanna's below!

HERE IS WHAT SANNA SAID ABOUT HER PROCESS....
I first print out some of the digi papers I want to play with and print some of the elements on an A3 sheet of paper. First I arrange them in a photo editing program like InDesign so they are within thedimensions of an A3 sheet making them much easier to print. This way I have plenty of elements on hand ready to cut and arrange on my artwork.
I then created a digital background by clustering and layering the elements in my photo editing program making sure the work space dimensions would fit into my printers dimensions. After printing my background I cut it out and pasted it to a sheet of 12X12 Cardstock framing it and also to provide a more rigid base as I am going add lots of dimensional texture to it.
I added some black glimmer glaze splatters here and there along with some white marker faux splatters for more dimension. Using my trusty Crafters Workshop stencils I then applied some gold pops of texture by scraping Golden Texture paste through the stencil directly onto the background. Then I went along and stamped in black. (I like to use black so as to add some strong visual contrast.)
Now that my base is dry I can start to add the photo's and begin cutting some of the elements I printed out earlier. I chose a word art from the Core Radiance Kit to fussy cut and stagger over my photo's which helps guide your eye across the 3 main photo's and also works perfectly as part of my journaling.
After everything is glued gown and I have decided on the title I add one last little nifty trick to make the title stand out even more. Simply using a sharpie pen I outline each letter giving them a more defined appearance, I think they stand out so much more from the background.
