After the Storm


Had a *mad* day yesterday - literally! I was MAD about all sorts of things and did a bit of stomping, yelling and even punching pillows before i decided to take it out on some craft materials. In NO mood to do pretty, pretty acrylics or soft pastels, I got out my WIRE, beads and paper and scrunched, tore, bent, cut and generally had a great time being MAD. LOL who knew it could be such fun! Anyways, after I was done I decided to create something out of it and change the energy. Result is this prayer scroll necklace. I think I might have a MAD day regularly!

Mixed Media Fun




Been having lots of fun with mixed media lately. Lots of layering and glue, paper, paint, pens and MESS! Just need to find someone willing to clean up after me now and I will be in heaven. LOL

So this is the before and after pic of my latest project. As you can see, I left some areas, painted over others and added more painted roses to match. I have a challenge going on over at my Ning site to follow my lead and do a Rose related mixed media piece incorporating collage so if you would like to join in the fun, hop right on over there now. You will need to join if not a member, but it is free. There is a prize up for grabs too!
