Something Different....

Hello everyone.. Hope your all doing well..  I have something a little different to share with you today..
Its my venture in to Mixed Media.
 A few weeks ago I started playing around with  Mail Art, that in no time lead me to mixed media..
It also lead me to sketching,  I use to do that a lot as a kid..
But was never that good at it.. Well I'm still not that great at it, But have been enjoying
 giving it a try again..
Here is one of the sketch's, that I used on this  project.

I know, I know, she not really in proposition.
Here she is colored

So then I painted a canvas with Acrylic paint. Did some stamping on it., Some stenciling, Colored the butterfly's with markers, added some flowers, and added the text..I know its not that great But I cant begin to tell you how much fun I had with it..

 Well that's it for today thanks for stopping by and for all your lovely comments..
Hugs, Linda

Wow Linda, what a fabulous creation! (I'm so rubbish at drawing - at school we had to draw some fruit .... so I traced round some bananas - I was good at the colouring in bit though Ha!)
