DABBLING WITH MIXED MEDIA

Hi Peeps,
I have had a dabble with Mixed Media. :-) A really good Friend sent me a box of goodies - things to alter, wooden shapes etc, so I have tried to make something.
I am fairly new to MM and still haven't really quite got the hang of it. I do know though that I simply MUST get some Distress Stains. !!!!!  I've got inks and some other spray thingies but they really just don't DO it..... not enough pigmentation !!!!  I see all these other glorious MM creations and their depth of colours are awesome and mine just doesn't cut it.  Ah well. !
Now I fuzzed out the photo because this is for a little Friend and I don't want them to see it until it arrives - or at least know that it's for them !! Hee hee
The little wooden cat is from THINGS TO ALTER, words from Make & Create, stencil used with modelling paste from Dutch Doobadoo (Faded Dots) and the flowers are from SAMFLORA.





I used multiple die cuts of the same shape stuck together to build up height and I added lace and corrugated card (now hidden underneath ) You can't really see it in the photo but the detail is better when you're actually holding this piece :-D 

Things to Alter have a FaceBook Club HERE.
Samflora FaceBook Club HERE.




Oh Yeah !!!! As regards my gardening mishap with the badly swollen finger and half my hand....... opinion has it that I was stung by a Scorpion !!!!!!
No wonder it freaking hurt so bad. :-( 

Thanks for popping in.

  6. Well, for what my opinion is worth, I think your Mixed Media project is FABULOUS. I love the subtle colours and all round prettiness.

    OMG . . . a SCORPION . . . I saw one behind glass, safely ensconced in a zoo last week . . . but would not want to encounter one in any other way! Hope you feel better soon.

    Big Hugs, Sarn xxx
