My first attempt at mixed media. I covered the entire canvas with tissue paper first, then added various ink sprays (some SU! ink refills w/ water), gelatos and smudged Pitt artist pens. The darker green blotches are melted wax from a Crayola crayon. Stenciled embossing paste using MFT, Tim Holtz, and misc stencils. I traced & cut the bird from a little wooden cut out onto MFT smooth white CS three times and layered with FC gel medium before covering with gesso. Used gelatos to color him in and added whipped spackle dots. Added little rhinestones to the bird's eye and flower centers, and a cute little pink feather on his head.

Oh my gracious! I feel so lucky that I was able to notify you on this because if Susie hadn't picked it for a favorite, I wouldn't have seen it. I can't believe this is your FIRST mixed media! It's stunning!!!!!!!!
