A few weeks ago, I dismantled 10 sewing machines, and collected all the small parts to create different mixed media items. I got a 40cm x 70cm x 2cm MDF board to create a wall piece for my living room with some of the swing machine parts, and lots of Prima goodies. The MDF board is light, but it is stronger than a canvas, since the piece is slightly heavy with all the metal parts.
The board was covered with papers from an older collection from Prima. The papers are slightly green. This colour was chosen to fit in with the interior in my living room.
The canvas is hanging over the over and old writing desk after my grandmother. The dress in front of the photo is a mixed media item created earlier (with tutorial) with Prima's Tales of you and me, fabric and fabric hardener.
So this is the box with the smaller items from the 10 sewing machines.
Some of these items were used on the canvas. This is the result of gluing the metal items and some of the flowers to the canvas, before it was painted.
I have also added old lace and an old zipper. I have used Kaisermists, mists from 13arts and Color Bloom from Prima. I have also used Finnabairs new Opal Magic and MetaMica.
The photois of my little Jack Russell terrier.
I hope you enjoyed it.
