House Mixed Media Canvas

My obsession with Mixed Media projects continues.  Never fear, I’m still sewing, knitting and crocheting as well – I can never just do ONE thing.  In fact, I’m working on a crocheted pair of boot cuffs for my sis now.  Please follow me on Instagram if you don’t – lots of my needle projects are posted there!

This house mixed media canvas is one of those projects that was on my t0-do list forever – like at least a year or two.  Margie demonstrated one in a Spark Online class, and it immediately went on my list; however, I kept putting it off.  Now, I’m glad I jumped in and just did it.  It’s my favorite one so far.

The quote says “Live Life in Full Color” – that sums up my philosophy pretty well!

I just love how mixed media allows you to use so many textures!  I’ve always been a texture junkie, even back when I was cross-stitching, I always added buttons or beads to my pieces to give them more dimension.

Here’s another one – a butterfly mixed media canvas.  This one may have had a little too much texture 🙂  But I do like how the butterflies jump off the canvas.  The quote is “With Brave Wings She Flies.”
