Mixed Media Embroidery Hoop | Step by Step Tutorial for ItsyBitsy | Be Your Own Sunshine by Mukta

Hey guys
Welcome back and today I have a mixed media canvas for you all but on a embroidery hoop and his is also my DT inspiration project for ItsyBitsy and you can visit me there by clicking HERE..  I have a few embroidery hoops with me as my mother in law used to do embroidery work......and now she has no use for them and she gave them to me. The same day I saw sunshine after many rainy days and I thought to do some art on this embroidery hoop inspired by this gorgeous ray of sunshine....and this is what I came up with.

The flower pots on my window sill are always buzzing with butterflies, birds and bees...a few caterpillars also blossomed into beautiful butterflies this my garden is my inspiration along with sunshine for making this canvas.....I find inspiration everywhere and this time on my window sill.

The hoop is 10" in diameter and it is actually a large canvas to do mixed media work. So I chose big flowers and a big embellishment to cover more area and at the same time make it look pretty. I love making shabby chic projects and for particular one, I actually didn't put much effort to make it all just came through on its own.

I am putting this canvas up at the following challenges:
  1. More Than Words - September Challenge - Sunshine and Yellow
  2. Mixed Media place - August Moodboard - The moodboard inspired me to do a floral frame which is shabby and also very happy and fun to look at.
  3. Mixed Media Art August challenge - Colors of life- My art is inspired by the colors in nature and in general life.

I have a video tutorial showing you how I created this art I encourage you all to watch it if you are interested to know how I made this.

 You can visit me on ItsyBitsy blog for a list of supplies. Thank you for stopping by...have a fun day ahead.
