A Picture, an Iron and a Sewing Machine

For a long time, to me,  mixed media meant using different art supplies (acrylic, watercolors, pencil etc)  on paper, canvas or other flat surface. I’ve learned that it extends so much further than that.

After years of experiments with supplies , digital imagery and computers, reading about other artist in their ventures, I’ve come to realize that mixed media overlaps into everything. It’s like a big web of colors, images, textures, tools and techniques all coming together. Whatever makes you happy “sorta thing”. And the funny thing is no matter what I am working on be it soap making, or sewing up a pillow, the end results still has that “Me Brand”.

I have let myself go in my creative playground…..where everything and anything is possible….no rules.

Using transfer paper, I ironed a photo of Gorgi (our Pug) on a piece of linen (curtain cutoff). I then stitched and trimmed it into a pillow and little pouch.
