Mixed Media Monday: Harvest Time.

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.
