Fairies – a mixed media project

Standard

One of the larger pieces I’ve created, this 16″x20″ wood canvas piece was inspired by my love of fairies. I used a collage technique for the base, then layered with gesso and paints. I added 3D embellishments like the necklace and butterflies to add more dimension to the piece.

Thank Goodness for Little Girls – altered can

Standard

Dress Up Can

I created this altered paint can for a client to give as a baby gift for a friend’s daughter.  I covered the can with decorative paper, 3d embellishments and fabric ribbon.  I also covered the top of the can’s lid (the Creative Memories circle cut out is a perfect fit!) Finally I cut strips of decorative fabric and knotted them all over the handle for a final touch!
