Mixed Media Art Piece

Art Piece: Hummingbird in the Garden II

I have been looking so forward to spring. The sun making the days longer...the beauty of the flowers and nature...gaining more energy and more motivation.

This piece was made with five simple tools. Decoupage glue high gloss, scissors, my Oprah magazine/tissue paper, a paint brush to spread the glue, and an old Window.

I searched through the magazine to find the colors that I loved, and I ripped those pages out, ripped them to shreds....finally, I glued my pieces on the window in a design that reminded me of Spring.

All of the elements on this piece are either pages from my Oprah mag. or tissue paper. I save all of my tissue paper from the gifts that I you can see, you never know when you will be able to use them in a piece of art.

My hummingbirds...I love them...they are made from the shirt that Oprah was wearing in one of her pictures in the magazine.

Art is everywhere!

I like to spread the glue on the entire windowpane. This adds texture to the piece and it also disperses the light in a nice way when this piece is hung in front of a window.

You can create such beauty if you allow yourself to think outside of the box and view ordinary/everyday things in a new way! Let the season of Spring awaken your creativity.

Until Next time...
