Today is my Blog Anniversary….

18 Mar

Wow… thank goodness WordPress told me LOL!!!  I didn’t even notice!  I started my blog 2 years ago today 🙂  Yesterday at The Cutting Garden it was mixed media day, we all got together and created canvasses.  It was tons of fun!  Today was my day off and I got up this morning still in the mixed media mode….

mme1I created this canvas using My Mind’s Eye paper and stamps.  I began by stamping all over tissue paper and then adhering it to the canvas.  Then I got out my stencils and modeling paste and made a lovely raised pattern over top of the tissue paper.

mme2Once that dried, I spritzed it with some country blue spray and some shimmer mist and began decorating.  I cut out a heart and trimmed around it with lace.  This is my idea of mixed media…. lace, flowers, butterflies and flourishes.

mme3I added what ever embellishments that if felt looked nice, I just placed everything on the canvas and made adjustments until I was happy with the layout.

mme4I smeared some Gesso in spots to give it a bit of a softer look.  This was a very fun canvas to create!  I love the idea of just doing what ever you feel like doing.  If you haven’t had a chance to try to make one of this, I highly recommend it!

Thanks so much for stopping by!Signature
