Hi there and happy Monday to you all! Tonight I am excited to finally share another mixed media project! I love doing mixed media but it still intimidates me so I don't do it nearly as often as I should. But I was inspired by my dear friend and co-worker to create this little canvas for her birthday.
As you all know, I work for the Oregon Department of Forestry and a week or so ago we got to go spend the day out in the beautiful Oregon rainforest. My friend organized the meeting and since we went on May 4th she used the theme "May the forest be with you". Well, I had just purchased the oh so adorable Forest Friends stamp set from My Favorite Things, which just happened to have that exact sentiment!
So when I found out that my friend's birthday was on May 5th I rushed home from work and started making this little canvas to give to her both as a birthday gift and a giant thank you for the fabulous day we all got to spend out of the office and amongst the trees.
If you're interested in how I created this canvas, check out my YouTube tutorial linked below. Any time I create mixed media projects I am greatly inspired by Vicky Papaioannou. As far as I am concerned, she is the queen of mixed media! Check out Vicky's YouTube channel for tons of amazing inspiration!
Thanks so much for joining me this evening! I'll be back soon with more crafty inspiration. Until then, have a great week! Bye!
