Live your dreams mixed media canvas

Hello my dear crafty friends I hope you haven’t missed me to much!!!!!! If you follow me on Facebook you may have seen I have not been feeling myself lately my depression seems to have raised its ugly head again and I have been struggling to keep on top of it if I’m honest.

Having said that I have been getting the urge to do some mixed media as I have been seeing some amazing work from other crafters creating stunning mixed media pieces.

I have only done a few canvas’ before 4 in fact, 2 for a friend  which were my very first 2 and they were quite basic and simple as it was a couple of years ago. Then I created a couple using digital images and handmade flowers, which were OK and again very simple but I wanted to make a REAL mixed media piece and I think I have done so with this piece.So a first in my eyes.

I started off with a basic idea I wanted to make a bird cage and a dream catcher (have not made either before both made from scratch using cardboard for the main bodies of both.

The  canvas has been covered with paper from the Belle Papillon collection from polkadoodles  and I have made tags and butterflies for the canvas using papers and embellishments from this collection also.

The rest if the embellishments are from my stash, including broken jewellery, cardboard and chipboard corners, it’s all been coloured with Distress Oxide inks and acrylic starlight paints.

I hope you like it and I will see you very soon with more makes honest

Happy Crafting

Jacki xx
