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. (You can click on picture to see it larger.)
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.”
Here are links to a few of my favorite tutorials that have really helped me:
