I just wanted to share my very first mixed media artwork. I was inspired by a friend of mine, Stacy Evans...Pink Poodle Crafts on YouTube....because of a Beginner Mixed Media Tutorial she made (CLICK HERE to watch it).
Here is my creation
This side view shows the dimension that was created by adding some tissue paper butterflies loosely over the top of the tissue paper butterflies that I had Mod Podged.
HINT: Don't throw away that tissue paper out of gift bags...save it...it will come in handy :)
Believe it or not, the base of this creation is cardboard from a cereal box....I love recycling and upcycling so I thought this was perfect.
I incorporated my favorite colors in this creation, and for texture I used Mod Podge to attach things like gauze, scraps of net tulle, and a torn piece of paper towel that had been used to clean up some of my paint (got that idea from Stacy). The butterflies were die cut from tissue paper and outlined with a Sakura glitter gel pen. The saying was stamped onto tissue paper, cut out, and Mod Podged on. The stamp is from the Tim Holtz "Boundless Flight" stamp set Visual Artistry Collection I felt that stamped saying was so very appropriate for this piece.
