Mixed Media-Lost

This is my entry for this weeks Mixed Media Challenge on Just for Fun I had glitter and paint all over the place so it definitely was messy.

I started off by putting glue on a piece of card. Adding sprinkles of different glitters and, when it had dried, I drew trees with a marker pen. Hadn't a clue where to go from there so added a face and ran a bit of silver card through the cuttlebug to cut out a hat. Still lost so added the word lost. Stamped randomly around the edge to finish it off.

  1. Fab piece love how you incorporated 'Lost' into it seems so right with the face there looking out from the trees. Never thought of using a marker pen over glitter very inspiring. Thank you for joining us at Just for fun XOXO Zoe
