Vacation: Mixed Media with Shari Carroll and Buttons Galore

Mixed Medium with Shari Carroll

Welcome everyone!!! We are well into winter with snow and frigid temperatures here in the Mid West and thought it was a good time for a breath of warm vacation air!! I’ve created a quick and easy mixed media project using some beautiful combinations of Sparkletz from Buttons Galore.

I started off by creating a tray by gluing a piece of Media Board to the back of a Vignette Frame. Once I had the tray painted and dried, I added the Sparkletz one color at a time until  it was filled.

I covered an 8×8″ frame with my favorite Silver Silk Tonic paper, added a few sprays of paint and a greeting… and I had my window of my vacation sea glas!!!
