Lastly, a new Mixed Media project featuring a piece of junk jewelry as the focal point.  I found a great 2nd hand frame this weekend and was inspired to create a mixed media piece to go with it.  I really like how this one turned out!

How to make a textured, rustic sign with TCW Stencils

Hello all,

I am over on the The Crafter’s Workshop Blog today with a Home Decor piece featuring the “Coffee Bar” Home Decor stencil.  Lately, I have been inspired by photos of rusty old cars, trucks, and metal pieces.  All of the lovely layers of paint, rust and texture on these old, decrepit items are so cool!  The Coffee Bar sign below is my interpretation of this beautiful rustic color and texture.

A Mixed Media Journey

Hello all,

While I was out searching for treasures at my favorite antique shops and second hand stores, I found a really cool vintage car (home decor piece) done in metal.  I grabbed it up right away with thoughts of a Mixed Media canvas bouncing around in my head.  I was so excited however, it took me several weeks to fit this project into my schedule.  So much mixed media, so little time!  lol

Anyhow, just wanted to share this project with you today.  I am planning on framing this 14″ x 18″ piece once I find the perfect frame.

I love how it turned out and I hope you do too!

Happy day!
