Mixed Media Creation

I have been very lazy busy and haven't posted in soooo long.  Thank you so much for your patience with me!  I thought I would write a quick post and share a mixed media painting I did a few months ago.  It is only my second attempt at this type of art, but I did have fun.  

 It is hard to see the writing, but I wanted it to be muted.  I sewed on the pearls to the bottom of the vintage handmade lace and made the dimensional butterflies from 5 layers of different papers including vintage book pages, scrapbook paper, vellum and printed butterflies.  I added a swarovski crystal to the corner sun with vintage buttons & a doily.  This represents the butterflies fluttering to heaven.  It is hard to see that there is dimension to the added rays from the sun and the corner scrollwork.  

This piece of art hangs in the front office at my work in a mammography department.  I work in a back office, but am happy to share it with others.

Have a great rest of your week & I will share some goodies I got during the holidays from some wonderful bloggy friends next...
