So the reason for my absence is that I've been taking some medication that sent me off to la la land...lol You all know I'm a bit la la anyway but hey dizziness and computers just do not mix unless it's my usual blond dizziness that is :D
I am now taking some different medication and am crossing fingers... knees AND toes... in the hope that this one will keep me in the land of living and laughter instead of under the duvet and in the land of nod. Cor it's a good job I'm not a drinker or I'd never see daylight...lol
So onwards and upwards I created this mixed media piece on a visit to my pal Chriss a wee while ago and didn't get chance to share it with you.
I have long admired the work of a lovely lady Viola who creates the most amazing mixed media pieces.... check out her blog to see what I mean, you won't be disappointed believe me.
Now I can't profess to be anywhere near her level but I have sooooo wanted to have a go at making something that had lots of layers of beautiful lace and embellishments and this is what I ended up with.
Layers of ribbon, pearl beads and lace
all hand sewn to frame this pretty image which I stamped onto cotton with Stazon and coloured with a dye based marker pen. (Not sure whose the stamped image is but will share with you later)
The background paper I used on my wall hanging is my favourite from Crafty Individuals papers as I love all of the white flowers.
More lace, fabric heart and a lovely white decorative button from my stash that I had been keeping for something special finished my piece ready for hanging.
I think that this will always be one of my most treasured pieces ... it being my first and I'm so happy with myself that I finally gave in to temptation and created what my heart was telling me I needed to.
Thanks for visiting and hope you all have a fabulous weekend.
