Hello Sunshine

Good Morning!

When I saw the Saffron Honey collection I knew I needed to create my next mixed media piece.
 I love the subdued yellows in this collection.

I started out by tearing and arranging pieces of the saffron honey cardstock.

and some scraps of dictionary pages and cracked cardstock I already had on a 10 x10 canvas.

I attached the sheets with a light molding paste. I let the molding paste fill up the open areas too.

 I painted in the open areas with a transparent yellow iron oxide and randomly dripped black, caramel, ginger, and sunshine yellow alcohol ink and let it drip down the canvas.

I created flowers by taking zipper pieces and gluing them in a circular pattern with Beacon
Fabri-Tac adhesive.I then took black string beads and added then around the flowers. for the center of the flower I used honey passion archival seeds .

The honey bee netting and the ephemera card came from Saffron Bee Die Cuts

and the Saffron Cards.

I rounded out the piece using a bottle cap art piece and some filmstrip.

I had so much fun incorporating The Robin's Nest ® Saffron Honey Collection into my newest piece of mixed media art.

I want to invite you all to join us at The Robin's Nest ® blog hop at the end of March. It will be so much fun and prizes too!!


I have been creating art for as long as I can remember. I studied graphic design in Portland,Oregon before moving to Denton, Texas and putting all my focus on mixed media art. In addition to being on The Robin's Nest Design Team, I am an article writer for mixed media art, on the Creative Paperclay Design team, and a blogger for DecoArt. I strongly believe in giving back. I volunteer at Scrap Denton Creative Reuse Center where I teach workshops, art camps, and perform art demos. I am very passionate about mixed media art and helping others discover their creativity.
