Let the Sun Shine In - Mixed Media Painting


Hello Sunshine!

It's finally Spring here, but it still looks like winter outside! Nevertheless, I can't wait for the sunny and warm Spring weather ahead :)

Today I want to share with you all my latest mixed media painting. I'm so addicted to this craft already! It's the perfect blend of paper, paint, modgepoge and embellishments.  I love how it turned out, and was super excited to give it away to a friend of mine that was in need of a little sunshine in her life! Hope that when she looks at this, it will make her day will feel a little brighter ;)


The paper I used was all scrap pieces of paper I've collected through the years of papercrafting that I had no idea what to do with. I just free hand cut out the flower. I did however use my silhouette machine to cut out the stamped letters. I finally got a chance to try out my pixscan mat. Click HERE to see what the pixscan is all about!


Hard to see from a picture, but there is so much detail and texture on this painting... I LOVE it!!!


Here is a step by step look at how the painting evolved!


I hope this has inspired my fellow paper crafters (or anyone else intersted) to try out this type of painting... If you are a crafter, I'm sure you have tones of scrap paper you could use up! For those of you wanting to try this, I would recommend watching some You Tube videos and then just go for it! You'll be amazed at what a little paint, paper, modgepoge and creativity can make!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)
