Mixed Media Monday - Wings

This week the theme on Mixed Media Monday is wings, chosen by our new gues host, Kelly! I decided that my mp3 player needed a little pouch, so this was the perfect opportunity to make one. The image is printed onto printer fabric and softly coloured with Prisma pencils. This is then mounted onto a piece of silk. The next layer was fun - it is a piece of "crash" fabric that I painted with acrylic paints and then "tortured" with my heat gun. All of this was sewn onto a little padded pouch that I made and then I added a lace fragment, a gorgeous lacy flower motif that my daughter gave me, and a butterfly motif.
