Mixed Media for Mom

Hello all,

About a month ago I posted a picture on Instagram of the tin of junk jewelry that my mom had saved up for me (I have re-posted the photo below).  I was super excited to dig into this pile of goodies and have already used bits and pieces on several projects since then.

To thank her for this fabulous gift, I have made my mom a Mixed Media Canvas (7″ x 5″ x 1 1/4″) using pieces from this junk jewelry collection.  Outside of the Tim Holtz Quote Band, all other embellishments came from the items that my mom had given me.

She knows I love this stuff so she collects these items for me from 2nd hand stores and flea markets.  I hear that she has another batch of goodies to give to me when I see her next.  Lucky me!!

I will see her again on Thanksgiving and plan to give her this Mixed Media piece at that time.  Fitting, I suppose.  I sure hope she likes it!

Hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving full of family, friends, and wonderful times!

Happy day!

Lori
