LOC First Mixed Media

Hello everyone - it is lovely to see you!  Although I have not posted anything for the past couple of says, believe me when I tell you I have been busy - Layers of Color has a New Release happening and the Design Team are busy creating Sneak Peeks for you - I will be giving you some sneak peeks early next week....

In the meantime I thought I would show you my first Mixed Media piece - it is always something I have admired but was never game enough to give it a try, until a post card arrived in our letter box with the Mona Lisa on it - by the time I had walked up the path to the front door, I had added some touches to her in my mind....from there it was only a matter of finding the opportunity to do it!

 Regal Wings, Renassiance Hearts art stamp sets.  The music is recycled from an old Hymnal.

I am going to be creating a Collage and framing it in a lovely old gold filigree frame that we purchased at a garage sale - I am playing around with a few ideas and desperately need some inspiration....I do have some fabulous Grungeboard hinges and some other wonderful goodies up my sleeve and look forward to showing you the finished piece - but remember that 'Rome wasn't built in a day' and the creative process on this one is going to be a slower one for me as I find my way!

Layers of Color has a New Release Blog Hop on January 17 - we would love you to join us - there is an opportunity to win a New Release stamp/s from each Designer - you won't want to miss this!  Watch this space for some Sneak Peeks!!

You can see more of my projects in my Layers of Color Gallery, while you are there make sure you check out the other Design Team galleries there is so much inspiration waiting to be discovered, we are thrilled that Layers of Color is a Spellbinders Preferred Stamp Company

  1. Linda, this is fabulous. How nice to have someone send you the postcard. I love the wings and crown. What if you added some lace or charms?

  2. Linda I took one glance at this in my 'dashboard thumbnails' and knew it would be you before I even looked at the headline!!

    Fabulous and whimsical my friend - looking forward to the final result!!

  3. Jaw drop alert! Fantastic mixed media art, Linda! I can't wait to see how this all comes out, I have total faith that it will be fabulous. You go with it girlfriend.

  4. linda this is just amazing! Let's just say that if Mona Lisa saw how you had her dressed up she'd have a FULL smile!!! Love your mixed media project! I so want to try one!
