8 x 8 "Kite"
I would love to take full credit for the idea behind this week's piece for Mixed Media Monday, but it was actually my husband who suggested that the childhood project of putting paint on one side of a piece of paper before folding it over to create it's opposite (I'm sure there's a technical term for this) would make an interesting twist on the theme, "Opposites Attract."
Inspired by his creativity, I got to work on creating what turned out to be this 8 x 8 "kite." I used acrylic on watercolor paper that was sprinkled with glitter before being adhered to a piece of chipboard. The kite was then formed with strips of sequins and a Swarovski crystal in the center. I added the craft store butterfly to the kite strings after doing similar mirroring on it's wings with a stamps dipped in paint and glitter.
