It's an interesting task so I decided to make something. First, I asked myself: what skills do I have? Knitting, sewing... It wasn't enough. Then I glanced behind my window and saw flowers... meadow, old wood, fields. It reminded me about my folk adventure and aunt who is an expert (for me) in découpage - and my idea for mixed media appeared in my mind.

How to save the beauty of summer nature in small thing?

bracelet made of hit and bended plastic, sewed frame,  découpage flowers (from my garden !) and knitted clasp








It was funny to make it and look really good with summer dresses! ; )

Very pretty and it would be hard to get more mixed media than that!

wow, so nice and pretty!

If i understand correctly, it's two layers of plastic and flowers between them, right?

Thank you ! I'm so happy reading it ; )

It's one layer of plastic and dried flowers which are glued to plastic and then put 2 layers of varnish ( to protect and have nice glossy look) ; ))

Love it!!!! Was the plastic from a recycled bottle?  Old plastic soda bottles with smooth sides make great little windows for a lot of things.  Love the flowers.

It was recycled, not from bottle, but from the old rc ariplane model. I love flowers too, however, alive are much more pretty ; )
