If you visited me last Tuesday you may
remember my venture into mixed media art.
Since then I have completed three more pieces!
The one above was inspired by black and white paper
on sepia toned background. I painted the tree trunks in this piece.
The one below shows a little more painting.
Yesterday I spent some time in my studio
creating another piece.
First I start by gluing phone book pages
to a canvas. Once dry, I squeeze on some paint
and enjoy creating what I want the background to look like.
I love the way the paper bubbles and creates
My inspiration for this piece was a quilt pattern
called the Tree of Life.
I cut the small triangles from a sheet of Basic Grey
Trying to get the pattern straight and gluing down these
little pieces made my head hurt!
Once I had that done, the fun part is finishing up with a pretty
border and adding any embellishments that I felt it needed.
This is such an enjoyable art form for me.
It has opened up all kinds of creative uses for my
collection of scrapbook papers.
I make my own decoupage medium also!
It's a 50/50 mix of Elmer's Glue
and water shaken together well.
I am linking up with dear friend Holly,
at Cutie Pie Cottage, for her Dotty Hop Day!
My 'Tree of Life' has polka dots in the border!
Have a wonderful day!
