How cool is this?!

Hello! Merdrey here with another unfinished project that has been lying around my home! As i get ready for the move, there’re just so many things i find half finished around my scrap table. I have had this canvas for the longest time, from when Elsie was still running her etsy store and was doing lots of painting! I was so inspired then, that i drew this with pencil and brushed over everything with a layer of gesso as the base. It was then left there…for the perfect time to finish it. This is what i have now..


I used some punchinellas…for the blinding flashlight *giggles* and some beads…


I used the pink mixed media kit for my camera…


and some yellow Mixed Media Kit for my boyfriend’s camera (which is much bigger than mine! just fyi!)


It was fun to just grab things and see if they match and i love the uncertainty of the Mixed Media kit…it’s like a mini treasure trove of objects! Check your kits to see if you’re lucky to find interesting bits for your latest projects!

I think i need a title for the canvas…any suggestions?

  2. fabulous I love this

  3. I love the colour kits! 😀 This is fabulous Merdrey! The title that springs to my mind is Snap Happy but I certainly don’t think it needs a title added to the canvas – it’s perfick as is!
