I l♥ve mixed media, so the question becomes, what is mixed media?
According to Wikipedia it is an art form combining more than 1 medium. I love how the paper line Live in Color with it's pre-printed splotches and splatters of color already look like they have layers of ink and paint on them!!
I gathered all my papers together and choose which would be the background and which would be the tea cups. After printing them out I individually hand cut them out, purposely removing the handles so that I could add my own, made out of wires, beads and costume jewelry which I glued on with Helmars 450 Adhesive.
Even the steam flourish, a die cut from my Cricut, from the same paper line, has been sanded, inked and stickled and really holds up well under my rough treatment of it, especially being such a delicate piece.
The only paper that is not from the collection is a piece of wax paper that I keep in the bottom of my spray box which collects all those gorgeous over sprays. I turned it over and then hand stitched it down to resemble a table cloth cover.
Thank you Susan for having me as a Guest Designer these past 2 weeks, I have truly enjoyed working with your wonderful products! Every paper has such a wonderful quality to it and the bright fun designs just makes you smile to look at them!
