A Mixed Media Weekend

The Deeply Rooted house is fully recovered from the Holidays, but now we're gearing up for a birthday party! My youngest will be turning three in a few weeks, so expect a nice, big post all about that in the coming weeks!
I recently had a great weekend up with my parents, without kids! It doesn't happen very often, but it gave us a great chance to catch up, eat, shop, and craft! I was very impressed...mom created her first canvas piece! I have a feeling she's hook on the mixed media style, because she's already sent me pictures of her new Zentangle journal, complete with a collaged cover!
I used the weekend to finish up one canvas, and then did one alongside mom, as well. The shopping trip was a great success, because I found the rub-on sentiment that I ended up using on this piece.

  I gave her a berry wreath for her hair, which I *love*. It doesn't stand out that much, but I feel like it gives her just enough interest.

I also used white rub-ons to give her flowers in her hair. I colored them with my Faber Castell big brush pens.

I'm thrilled to debut my mother's first canvas, as well! She seemed to have a great time making it, and I'm proud of how she finally 'let go' and let the piece create itself!

Not bad, eh? I love it! It's great to be able to make something you're proud of and be able to see it every day. I'd love to see your favorite creation! Leave a link in a comment so I can come check it out!


  1. Positively beautiful! I'm sure and your folks had a great time being together.

  2. Both are beautiful! Great work! Still waiting for time to try it myself...
