Crazy Cupcakes Anyone !!!

Hi Friends

sharing a  mixed media layout

I do not have any WIP pics, the following pic( Bad pic, pl excuse) shows the piece after some texture, color and stamping has been added. I created texture by randomly making some design by dripping white glue straight from the bottle and letting it dry. I have then sprayed with mists made out of artist quality watercolors and stamping with archival black. The butterfly is from Tim holtz Tissue wrap- Melange and adhered with Gel medium.

The following is a better pic.....I have recycled a waste card stock paper which had some ugly scribbles on the other side.Next pic shows the back side when I was attaching it with the double sided tape to another piece of salvaged textured paper (seen below) to strengthen my base.

 so the recycled part is this.... come more layers of colors and more stamping and Tissue wrap.....the sentiment is computer generated and colored with distress inks.

my butterfly gets a touch of color and glamour with the awesome shimmery ColourArte Silk Acrylic Glazes........

The cupcakes are free images from the net,re-sized and printed on laser printer on white card stock, fussy cut , layered, stamped and colored........ do you see the texture here..........

What if I tell you that these are real sprinkles on these cup cakes ?? well mad as it sounds,this is true !! The cupcakes have been textured with white glue and texture paste 'Icing' and 'real sprinkles'. After these dried completely, have sprayed with two coats of spray varnish to seal the sweet as to avoid any visits from my small friends from the insect world to come 'taste' my painting !!

 added both the cup cakes with foam tape for some more dimension.... the sprinkles got a final light brush of silver mica powder to really make them shine .........

I do hope you like my adventures in Mixed Media, I can tell you, I am having some good fun !!
