Scroll to the bottom for information on this piece and how it was created.

This mixed-media piece was created on a 12 x 12" canvas that was painted red. I wanted it to feel like a three-dimensional piece so I created depth by having items pop out at the viewer. There are fairy lights behind it, as well as a blue LED light behind the eye. It also glows in the dark. The branches were created using dryer lint and Golden fabric stiffener, then painted. If you love pop-up cards you will appreciate this piece.

Items used: Paper, wire, antique leather frame with embossed copper leaves, plastic fruit, powdered moss, silk flowers, canvas, acrylic paint and mediums, LED lighting, Battery-operated fairy lights. Please note: Lighting will have to be replaced over time, at owner's expense.
