Things Handmade (Altered Necklace)

I started with an idea to make an altered necklace of some sort. While in my studio I found some linen, burlap, and canvas AND of course my stash of beAutiful trim from The Piece by Piece. As you can see all the elements and layers melded together; into this amazing wearable piece. You can all of the trims at the Piece by Piece.

Explore New Places Mixed Media Page

Traveling is an enjoyable experience. It helps you explore new horizons and meet new people. For most of the people, it is a hobby. Exploring new places and getting acquainted with the culture and people is the best way of getting to know a place or country better. When you visit a new place, you get an opportunity to get familiar with the practices, beliefs, and of course the food! Each country has its own unique traditions and practices. While thinking on where my family and I will take our next vacation I thought of making this Mixed Media Art Journal page. So I invite you to sit back and take this journey with me!
