Mixed Media – my first attempt

My first attempt at mixed media.  I did this piece for my daughter and her partner.  The photo of them is printed on Gampi Silk tissue paper and placed on a collection of maps from places they have lived, which have always been on I-10.  And  some lyrics that describe them from a Jack Johnson song.

I have so many ideas, but I really need to work on some techniques first.  I have to say, it was so much fun to make this for them.


  1. Wow! That’s great!

  2. Great job. It is going to mean so much to your daughter.

  3. Looks great. I want to get my hands dirty trying mixed media, also.

  4. Wow, this is awesome. What a great idea and love the way you executed it. Turned out just perfect.

    Just stopped in to peek. Your mixed media first attempt looks right on the money! Great! Can’t go wrong with Jack Johnson.
