Mixed Media project

I spent my ME-time last week on a mixed media project. I made this little screen, my second after I followed  Linda Elbourne's workshop in May earlier this year.
The screen is about 14cm high and 28cm width. The base is chipboard.
I decorated it on both sides with lots of layers.
This is one side:
Images: Cemerony collage sheets
Borders: my own artwork
Journaling: Life is a carnival, live it for all your worth
(from a song of Elvis Presly)

And this is the other side:
Butterflies: Lisa's Altered Art collage sheets
Journaling: Butterflies danced on invisible strings, showing wings they borrowed from a rainbow
(from a song of Clif Richard)

I decorated the chipboard with several layers. The first layer is collagede with pages of an old swedish book. Loved the font that was used in this book and Sweden still has a special place in my heart, so I loved to put that extra little bit of me in this project.
I covered the bookpaper with layers of colorwash and used some great TCW stencils.
The last layer is acrylic paint which I dabbed through punchinella and magic mesh to create some texture and I added some doodles with my Micron pen.

On one side I added a lot of butterflies which I had printed from a collagesheet. I cut the butterflies, traced some lines with my Micron pen and added some white dots. Than I embossed them with Ranger holografic embossing powder to give them a lot of sparkle.

Do you like it as much as I do?
I would love to hear it!

Ik vind m super geworden, ik hou wel van de afwisseling van kleuren, en vind de details zo gaaf... ik ga niet te lang kijken want dan heb ik nog minder tijd voor al die dingen die ik af moet maken voordat ik het weet zit ik ook aan een kamerscherm............
