Greetings! We have a new challenge for you in the Mixed Media Place! This time the topic is wings. Quite appropriate in Christmas time, right? But still we are not looking only out for angels, but you can interpret the theme anyway you like! If you're stuck, please check the reveal post as there's many kinds of winged ideas!
Here's my take on the theme and it's a perfect example how one idea leads to another and the coat turns into a handkerchief. My first idea was to go big and make a pair of mixed media wings. I imagined them and thought about the construction when I went to sleep. But when I then started actually doing them, I suddenly wasn't inspired anymore. Maybe the reasonable side of me took over and was shouting something like "where you are going to put those?"
Somehow I then started to think about jewelry and my huge wings shrunk to be a tiny necklace. But I guess no harm done as I really enjoyed doing this piece! First I drew a tiny pair of wings to a piece of cardstock using a pencil and the Pitt pens. Then using an epoxy bubble cap I turned that drawing into an ornament to my pendant. I also added a couple of black feathers in to add the theme there once more. The tip of the feathers are treated with some glitter to make them more festive.
The frame around the drawn wings is a Mechanicals embellishment but the other jewelry parts are from my "mixed media stash". The big round metal bead used to belong to a purse decoration and the black rhinestone flower and the big drop shaped pearl were a part of one of my necklaces I loved back in the day but didn't use anymore. Now they have a new life in this piece of jewelry! And I must say, I've been wearing this one around town already and I guess I'll put it around my neck at the Christmas dinner.
Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you a peaceful start to the Holidays! I've timed my blog to have something everyday around Christmas time. There might even be a giveaway around the corner!
