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!

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.

I had such a fun time playing with the digital ements and making my own printable background ready to add some layered elements and texture too. I hope you enjoyed this Step-by-step and will give it a try!

OMG how great was that, I loved the handy tips for creating the background first up and then outlining the alpha really finished thepage beautifully. Thank you Sanna for sharing your inspiring hybrid process and those nifty techniques too!
