DecoArt Mixed Media Team project #1

Hi Everyone - have you missed me? I have been on holiday for a couple of weeks so my posts were scheduled whilst I was away. Having found the sun in Lanzarote I would still love to be back there but I have been waiting for this post to go live and I'm really happy to be home, looking forward to creating and blogging again.

Those who know me will appreciate the excitement I felt to be asked by Andy Skinner to be a member of the DecoArt Mixed Media Team and the excitement continues with the publication of my first project on the DecoArt Mixed Media Blog.

Here's a sneak peek and if you click the link above you will be transported over to see it in full with all the details of how I put my layered frame together.


As you can see it's a piece of altered art with lots of techniques and painty layers to create all the effects. I wanted to do something that was a bit different and where I could use the inspiration I have gathered from Andy but still make it my own.

If you manage to take a look please let me know what you think.

Thanks for stopping by.

hugs Brenda xx
