This week over at JFF the new months theme is Mixed Media this really gets the creative juices flowing, only problem is I couldn't decide what I was going to use. I settled on using fabric which I love (I also dabble in patchwork quilting) I used a piece of calico and gave it a swoosh of gesso then inked it with a rainbow colour and stamped onto it. Added a few pretty buttons, sequin stars and attached it to a card the background is torn text paper which I have given a gesso swoosh. The butterfly is cut out of the glass bead gel medium on card and been coloured. The words I thought fitting as it reflected my head being all over the place when I was deciding what to do with my mixed media LOL. I also have been working on a altered frame (from the £ shop) and I finished that today. It was a plastic gold colour I chose a steampunk theme and I have painted and crackled then stamped onto the frame edge, these are my two sons and the diamond obviously he is king LOL. The grunge flower was made by my mum and the heart with wings is a technique from the "Technique Zone" see the link on the right there is some really cool stuff on the site. Apologies for the flash back on the photo I shall try it in the daylight to get a better shot. Have a lovely week and thanks for stopping by XOXO.
PS I shall be putting the hanging into this months swap.
