I have been seeing this style of die cuts in many lines here recently so I wanted to create my own. This started as a Silhouette purchase design of #290234. I played with the pieces (welding some and creating holes in others) till I have the above die cuts. Using Oxide sprays to color the pieces I attached them together then mounted on black strip with sentiment stamped in versa mark then heat set in white embossing powder. The bg is from my stash and so old I don’t even remember making it. Adding the netting layer was to add depth plus fit the challenge sketch.
Tip: Learned that white gesso is for covering when all else fails. The base of this flower was white that I sprayed with brown but got way too much spray. I thought it was headed for the trash but then remember the lesson above. Once coated lightly with thin white gesso it became quite useable. The other lesson about mixed media was that you are one more addition to perfection so don’t stop till you are happy.
