Delicate “Be Free” Mixed Media Layout


“Be Free”

Mother nature is so amazing, I am always excited when we find a new creature in our gardens. This year we were lucky enough to find a sphinx moth fresh out of it’s chrysalis. Normally we end up with  silk moths but never a sphinx.

I used lots of background on this page. I wanted to pull details and textures from the oriental lily he is sitting on and also pull in the delicate nature with the flower ribbon and cheese cloth.


I made a little video of the creative process. I hope you enjoy.

I used colours and details that to add to the paper, the paper had paints splatters and I added more splatters with the Paint Stencil. I also found the perfect colour of embossing powder to match the frame with the background paper.


I hope you enjoy this page, and  how mother nature can be so fragile and delicate and yet so overwhelmingly beautiful. Thanks for stopping by today.
