Mixed Media Tag
This is my first real attempt at mixed media. The idea was inspired by Christy Tomlinson and her tutorials on YouTube. She creates her pieces on canvas, but I didn't know if I was quite ready for that yet. I thought I better start small and work my way up. Lol! It was fun using so many different elements and really was very simple. The background was the funniest to create. I used scraps of card stock, and vintage music paper. I then applied twinkling H2O's, acrylic paint and stamps. I drew and cut out my little lady( I can't believe she came out pretty well) and dressed her up. Overall I'm very pleased with it and plan to practice on some more tags this weekend so watch out for more fun. If you get a chance check out Christy on YouTube, she makes it fun and really simple.
