Friendly Plastic Mixed Media Art

I have made ART...
I just had to share my attempt at mixed media art. As you know, jewelry is at the heart of all of my design work, but after being inspired by some of the beautiful mixed media pieces, I had to give it a go. The alcohol ink pieces I shared earlier were just screaming to be art. So I set out on a little journey. I do have to admit, it was not smooth sailing at all. I spent two days trying to make art... and hated everything I created. I even went so far as to call Linda and Jenn to cry baby about my failed attempts and that I must be experiencing creative block. And thank goodness I did. I must say that after talking to them, my spirits were lifted and... JUST LOOK... I made art.

They are not at the level of most mixed media artists, but they are a fair attempt, and a testimony that an old dog can still learn something new. Thanks to all that inspire.
