Today I’m sharing my version of Mixed Media Frankenpages. I’ve been making mixed media collages for years and this is a great way to use up scraps of paper. In today’s project, I share how to use old book pages and mixed media to make some Mixed Media Frankenpages. Making these pages is also therapeutic. There is something about gluing papers together that just makes me so happy.

Aren’t these so fun! I just love all the colors together and the sewing just brings the whole thing together.

What I really love about this project is it is just fun. It is fun to see how the acrylic paint and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists will react on the book pages.
While I might do the same technique no two are ever alike. Variety is fun and adds interest.
