A New Year... A New Technique

I‘ve wanted to try the mix media technique for quite a while so I finally decided to step out of my comfort zone.  While my confidence is up I’m going to try another one this weekend.  Can’t believe I didn’t play enough with the paints.  Isn’t that the saying, “If at first you don’t succeed try again”?  
Recipe ingredients:
Recollections paper
Creative Imaginations - musical transparency
Robert Jackson - digital
Spectrum Noir - markers
Making Memories - flourish
Tim Holtz - numbers
Americana - tomato red acrylic paint
Martha Stewart - gesso paint
Mod Podge
Tattered Angels Candy Apple Red glimmer mist
Glossy Accents
Hancock Fabrics - lace
Archivers - -die cut

I wrapped some tulle around the canvas and added some curly ribbon and beads.  I think it would be a cute Valentine's Day gift.  The bird cages are embellished with a strand of beads, mini rose and white feathers.
So what technique have you wanted to try but haven’t started or did you start, but didn’t get a chance to complete it?  This is your year!


  1. Princess! You did a great job on this. Love all the details. Phooey on the 'rules'! You know there are no rules (lol) you said play with the paint next time. this project is just fine the way it is! Love it. TFS.

  2. I agree, this is great! Love the paint on the metal numbers.

  3. Great job! Love the tule, ribbon and beads -- nice touch.

  4. What a beautiful project, I love how this turned out.
