Today I have a tutorial using Mixed Media Sheets by Therm O Web to create beautiful backgrounds and unique handmade flowers.

View the complete tutorial on how I made these background and handmade flowers using Mixed Media Sheets. These backgrounds are striking but still very delicate and pretty. These sheets are the perfect canvas and as you could see they hold all sorts of mediums very well. It is really sturdy and I love how the backgrounds turn out when I use it. You can paint a whole sheet and trim it for several projects or cut it into pieces from the start to create backgrounds in different colors. They are easy to adhere to surfaces using Therm O Web tapes and adhesives so you can add it to card fronts or small canvases too!
I would love to hear your thoughts on these cards and the background technique. I had shown a preview of a large sheet I had been working on recently on social media and everyone really wanted to know more details and see a final project made with the backgrounds, so that is why I decided to share this tutorial with Therm O Web!
