Fancy Flower and Mixed Media (by Shirley)

Hello everyone, I hope you are enjoying the summer. 

I have a design today using a little mixed media along with another flower from the beautiful Fancy Flower set along with a fragment from Lace Fragments. .


I started with a sheet from the Leafy Brocade Printable set and glued it to water colour paper with Modge Podge.   I love the printable sheets, the designs are beautiful and you don't have to store paper, just simply print when you would like one.

Next I added a thin layer of Gesso and when dry I coloured in blotches with Neocolour II crayons (water soluble).   I spritzed water over top and let the colours run together.   I stamped the images with Teal Blue Stazon Ink (permanent water proof ink)  I coloured the flower with Tombow markers and blended with a brush & water.  I outlined with a water based Sharpie paint pen.   I added stickles to the center of the flower.    The sentiment is from Words of Gratitude

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
Shirley

  1. The use of that gold key with the golden ribbon plus the glow around the fancy flower is so effective & I love the way your lace fragments border echoes the fancy flower too. The whitework is picked up beautifully byt eh white polka dots on the ribbon.
