Playing with Mixed Media...



I did a little decluttering of my studio space last week and came across several of these small 4x4 mini canvases. I just knew I had to play around with them.



I did some collaging on them with tissue paper, book papers, some of the girls' old school papers, even some leftover fabric scraps...



I was in the mood to create something that could be displayed just about anywhere for just about any reason...



I really resisted the urge to add some embroidery because I wanted to broaden my horizons a little bit. Not to mention the fact that I wanted this project to be relatively quick and easy. As much as I do not find embroidery difficult - it does take time.



I hope you enjoy this little bit of a departure from the stitching! I also hope this week finds you dry; it has been raining non-stop here in northeast Ohio for several days. My backyard can now be called Lake Shella:) Have a wonderful week.

These are wonderful. Approach quilting in the same way. Thanks for commenting on my blog. Lace is easy to paint-just do it. If you don't like it, paint over that. It's just a bit of lace.
