Creative Artiste ~ June #105 Anything Mixed Media Goes

 Hello Creatives 

It's again time to share a new project @ Creative Artiste 
First Friday of the month and a new Mixed Media Challenge 

Inspired by the first bloom from my Rose Bush 
always a sign that Summer is on her way...

My journal page this month is a layered composition of substrates. 
Acrylic and watercolour, machine, hand stitch and salvaged papers, 
fabric, embellishments and a found tag... 

Bead embellished Roses adorn the rice paper covered fabric pocket, 
stitched and filled with a bunch of die cut watercolour flowers.. 

Nature always makes me incredibly happy, 
a subject I share as often as free time allows. 
Forever rewarding giving me so much more 
than I could ever give back...

Come share your creativity with the team and Guest Designer 
see what mixed media makes they have created to inspire YOU 

Stay safe and creative 
Happy June Hugs 
Tracey xx

Creative Artiste ~ May Anything Mixed Media Goes #104

 Hello Creatives 

our theme is always *Anything Mixed Media Goes*

This month I share a simple Journal page, creating texture 
by embossing the page using an embossing folder layered with 
metallic paints inspired by nature, overlaying with embossing 
powders which I heated up to fix and add extra dimension... 

Reminding me of an aerial view of the coast line 
I added a Peacock Butterfly taken from a salvage napkin. 
I tore, pasted, cut then embellished it's wings adding glossy 
accents and then fashioned wire into little antenna feelers. 

Finished with a quote that worked like poetry in motion: 
*Stop to see the beauty along the way* 

We hope to see your beautiful creations @ Creative Artiste 
please come and share your Mixed Media Creations HERE
