Good Monday to everyone and welcome to Mixed Media Monday. It is I, Ann, from the All That Stickles Design Team with an 8"x10" canvas I made. This is my version of the present theme at our Linky Party: Harvest. I present to you my mixed media canvas titled "Harvest Time". It is a picture of an actual Russian Sunflower that I successfully grew and managed not to kill in my flower garden. These are stalky plants with nubby short stems and big, bold and beautiful blooms. I was attracted to the seed packet because of the deep red almost maroon shade of the petals, I planted the seeds directly in the soil, forgot to water, did not weed and despite all of my terrible gardening skills I was still rewarded with some gorgeous flowers! Hey if I can, anybody can. I photographed and then made this.
There are a lot of elements, mediums and techniques that went into making this piece if you want to learn about ALL the products I used to make this, please go over to my blog: Annmakes and there I will list the supplies and techniques(briefly). But hold on, I am not leaving you high and dry. Let me tell you here which Stickles (by Ranger) I used. The Stickles used were" Distress Stickles "Spiced Marmalade", "Black Diamond", "Paprila", and "Cinnamon". I will let you in on another tidd bit: I took the original picture with my mini iPad! Oh yes, the picture is on that canvas it has been altered with a variety of water soluble mediums, permanent inks and oil and a whole bunch of interesting ingredients.
I hope that you enjoyed your visit here today. Please leave me some comments, I love to read them.
