Multi Media Art

I've been playing around with Multi Media Art. This is the book before being decorated.
This is the book after adding lace, motifs, rhinestones and fabric puff paint.
This is a piece of MDF cut out. I've added lace to the bottom, then painted over the top.
The top of the cake has Texture Paste in small blobs then dry brushed with pastel colours.
I've added Opal Dust then fine pink glitter over the top for added sparkle.
I just want to add Thank you to the ladies who follow my blog, make comments and cheer me on.
Hugs, Anna

I love mixed media too Anna. I'm so envious of you having a play with paint this week. I miss my paints and brushes. Hopefully I will be unpacking them in a few weeks and can be creative again.
Chat soon.
