Hello, my friends! Today I want to share with you an Alphabet Mixed Media project. There is a challenge in a Facebook group I'm in where you take either the first initial of your first or last name. I chose to do the initial of my last name. I don't know if you can tell that it started out as an E, however! But, nonetheless, here it is! I had a lot of fun doing it. I LOVE mixed media art. It's my favorite thing to do, but I've not done too much of it lately. It felt good to get back into it.
So of course, I started out with a chipboard letter. I painted it with Gesso to prepare the surface. I then painted it with DecoArt metallic paint called Peacock Pearl. If you look very closely, you'll see that there's a peacock among the flowers (purchased from Wild Orchard Craft). I put a lace trim around the center of the letter I got from Cindy's laces. You can't see too much of it there, but it really helped to fill in the gaps. I had a butterfly applique I got from Kimberly of KPKre8ations, so to make it pop out on my project, I watered down the same color of acrylic paint and soaked her in it, and then dried her. The other butterflies, silverware, and little round embellishments (don't you like my terminology?) came from Reneabouquets where I had won a contest she had. I LOVE all these ladies and the wonderful products they sell/make.
I hope you enjoyed my project!
