Hi all , Today am posting mixed media layout created from a cereal box. This week fully went in experimenting new projects in crafts like peruvian thread earrings and mixed media art. After seeing the mixed media art works of Shilpa Nagaonkar and Gabrrielle Pollaco I too wanted to try my hands in that. So Altered a cereal box and created a layout named " Beauty". 


I covered the cereal box with white paper and pasted a small piece of old pattern paper . Then i cut out a template of a dress from cardboard.

Painted the other half of the box using watercolours and drew some doodles with markers. The design at right corner is done by using pearl paint and glitters.

Pasted scraps of paper from advertisement sheets. Using a thick wire i made the hanger and the dress is made from white pattern paper distressed with red and violet colours.

Sprayed some violet + blue paint  and added butterflies and crochet borders.

The design of this mixed media art was inspired from Gabrielle 's Vintage mixed media canvas tutorial.
