This was my first mixed media piece. I didn’t love it…but, it was good enough and the best I could do at the time. I made it for Mom and she loved it…of course!
I have been to her several times and recently I have been thinking that I could do better. On the most recent trip, I told Mom that I wanted to take it and try again. Here is the redux! It is better…but, still I need more experience to make it better. Perhaps there will be another version of this in the future. 🙂
To start, I took off the butterfly and painted what was there with ivory crafter’s paint, gesso, and I put on a printed napkin (which is completely covered!).
I cannot really go through all the steps of making this…if I even remembered. I will just do a list of goodies that were used.
