Hi everyone! I am posting a wee bit of a different project today. I started today's creation with the intent to make yet another watercolour card. However, as my creative process flowed in an indiscriminate manner, this whimsical framed piece of mixed media art came about!
At first glance, you may not even quite recognize the Stampin' Up Bundle that I used here. Saying that, by utilizing a few different techniques, I was able to make this bundle of products look more organic than the usual. If you check out the Swirly Bird Bundle of products (pictured below) you can see where my artful images in today's project came from.
I have been much intrigued with masking and watercolouring these days. I have also recently been in awe with mixed media art. So as today's aquapainters, water spritzers, blender pens, markers & inks flowed, this gem became much too pretty to fold up into a card. I had also purchased a few frames for my stash of things to be stamped a while back, & so voila! The two (artwork & frame) became one!
Of course my sweet daughter was stamping alongside me today. She was quick to claim my creation as belonging to her. Hence where the phrase on today's piece came from. I then claimed her work of heart. Mommy is going to have to purchase a special frame for this one. I think hers turned out better than my own. She has been learning techniques with me over the summer. Did I say she is only 5? I may have to make her a watermark for her future images!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! & I hope you leave inspired to mix up some media, or maybe even pull out your sewing machine!
