I'm involved in a workshop to make backgrounds using mixed media techniques. Then we scan them and use them in a digital piece. The background on this is the green. It's made by mixing green acrylic paint with embossing paste and then spreading it on a piece of lutradur. Then I pressed an embossing plate (leaves) into it and let it dry thoroughly. I'll do more with the background - this is just the digital part of the assignment. The cactus is a Dover royalty-free image - I removed the background and then filled in the pieces.
