Hi all, every now and then I do something creative that I would like to share with you all. I will be doing this on Saturday's from now on. When the creative mood strikes me. LOL
Here is a Piece I call my Believe Flower Collage. It is a Mixed Media Collage.. Created on Strathmore
Mixed Media Paper.
I first covered a piece of mixed media paper with book paper and covered it with Gesso. Then I stamped text and images with black Archival Ink and added a thin layer of Gesso on top of that.
I sprayed at the top of the page with Glimmer Mist and let the paint run down. After the paint was dry I added a tissue paper circle.Circled that with Black Acrylic Paint. The dot's around the circle are made using Punchanella and distress ink. Then I started adding color using Pan Pastels. I filled in all the white spaces and also layered color on top of the glimmer mist and the orange circle.
I then Brayered a bit of White Acrylics all over the piece except for the tissue paper circle. I created the flowers using Tim Holtz's
Tattered Floral Die.
The Stems were created by tearing strips of Tissue paper , soaking them with Gel Medium, rolling them like a snake and once dried adding Green Acrylic paint. The leaves were made with a Circle Punch and the Butterfly's are a Martha Stewart Punch. I used old book pages for both. I attached all with Gel Medium.
I then took some bubble wrap and purple acrylic paint and using it as a stamp stamped randomly.
My Sentiment is from the Stamp Set
