Romanesque bird ‘punked mixed media

IMG_0621

I’ve come to a standstill on this one.  I don’t think it’s finished but I don’t know what is missing.

The focal point is a small sketch I did of a Romanesque bird; I used coloured pencils on coloured paper followed by Pitt Artist pen.  I also ‘distressed’ it with Distress Inks and water spray.  It is a very, very sketchy drawing, but I feel I need to be a bit more confident in using my own drawings/art in such mixed media art.

I just don’t know what else this needs, though.  I’ve tried out the idea of using wire spirals wrapped with finer wire and beads, and that doesn’t feel it would work, not unless it’s one of the first things I make and use.  Flowers don’t work, neither does foliage…

So, I’ll leave it be for a while and come back to it at a later time…sometimes that’s the best thing to do.

Give Away!

Heart Card by Angela Porter

This card is 6″ x 6″.  The design is on watercolour paper and it glitters and glimmers with gold embossing, sparkling spots and patterns. The central heart and the outer layer are raised and shiny, thanks to the use of Ranger’s Glossy Accents. The green, pink, red and purple colours were added using Tim Holtz’s Distress inks, also from Ranger, with a waterbrush, and all relate to love, peace and harmony.  The design is mounted on a craft paper card and comes with a plain envelope.

If you pop over to my facebook page then you can enter a free draw to win this card!  I will draw the winner at random at 8pm UK time (GMT) on Tuesday 10th February.

Good luck!
