Valentine’s day mixed media project using recycled packaging.

This is a Valentine’s day inspired mixed media project using recycled packaging. I used left over packaging, I layered them with gesso, white lace, and trim. I also used a stencil to add texture. I used the Jane Davenport mermaid markers, Tombow markers, and I layered the colors to get a vibrant effect. The colors came out much brighter than I wanted, so I was able to tone it down using some white and light pink watercolors. I also used some Lindy’s sprays to tone down the very bright pink color.

The other two projects are also recycled packaging, and I used acrylic paints and I layered all three with flowers and embellishments! I finished off the last 2 with Lemon color liquid pearls in the corners to bring the piece to life. This is a fun way to use mixed media and layer different mediums to get a bright and cheery effect!
