Running a little late on my blog post this weekend. Life has been crazy busy. Work, grad school, and attemping to have a life. Throw in being sick and hurting my other foot, and there just isn't enough time in the day.
It's been either non stop freezing weather here (AKA 43 days since winter started below 0) or non stop snow. Our "inch" last night went over my ankle this morning, and resulted in very wet pants and socks during church this morning. We are looking at another winter storm tonight. Our summer keeps getting pushed back more and more.
On Valentine's Day, I met up with Rita from my crop group to try our hands at mixed media. I did a canvas back 6 months ago, and have been itching to try another one. I was planning springy with a bird, besides that I didn't have an exact plan.
The raised elements started with Faber Castell Modeling Paste. On the branch I used a Heidi Swapp stencil from her new line, and colored with her Chartusese spray ink. On top I used an Artist Workshop Stencil from Balzar design, along with gold Heidi Swapp spray ink.
After this my phone was forgotten. In the top right I used the Rose and Peach Heidi Swapp sprays to add color. The paper along my page is Basic Grey's Sweet Thread's line. This is retired, but it is part of the "Best Of" Collection at Hobby Lobby.
