A Mixed Media Christmas Tree...




I have been doing a little mixed media lately. Nothing on a grand scale, just trying to add some layers to my embroidery projects. One thing that I have been making a lot of is "Paper Cloth" I used the technique taught by Beryl Taylor in the premiere issue of Cloth Paper Sissors. I was in the craft store one day looking for some styrofoam balls for the girls to do Christmas ornaments when I saw the cones. I used the same techniques when covering the cone as I did for the Paper Cloth only I replaced the muslin with the cone. It was a lot of fun to make and it only took me about three hours to create. I still need to put a top on it, but I'm not sure what to do yet..
