Mixed Media 'Be the YOU'

Hi there!

This project started off as a one layer card and then my direction changed completely and the final result is a multi-layer mixed media project - and I enjoyed every minute of creating it.

I was inspired by this photo and used the colors in my project.


I used Distress Oxides for the focal image and the background canvas. The sunflower (CTMY stamp) was colored with prisma's after lifting some of the background color. Added some stenciling to both the focal image, and the background with modeling paste.  Stamped the sunflower image repeatedly on the canvas for continuation.  For texture and interest I layered corrugated board after painting with gesso and distress paint.  To finish off the sunflowers I added glitter glue and prills to the centers and lastly a burlap bow and tissue tape.
