Mixed Media Monday "Stitches"


The theme at MMM is stitches. I made a 6 x 6 piece. The background is a mixed media collage with fabric, lace, tissue and fibre to create some texture. I then painted over it with different acrylic paints including some Stewart Gill Alchemy paints, oh and Gesso of course; finally some stamping and inking.I then added some antique buttons and stitching of course, seeing that was the theme.

  16. Astrid, I think I overdo the word "exquisite" when I come to your artwork but really there is no other word to describe your beautiful collages. This one is superb, and I enjoyed reading about all the steps taken to achieve such a result. Standing ovation from me.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
