I have always wanted to alter a clothes pin, one of those big ones. Hubby found this one at Walmart for me, its like 9 inches long. I decorated this one for my nine yo niece Jordan. I painted it first with gesso, then slapped some pink paint on the edges. I added some prima papers, I then added some texture paste I made myself. I think the little angel is from The Graphics Fairy.

It may just be my monitor, but your first picture is half hidden under your followers button!

From what I can see in the remaining two pictures though, this is exactly the sort of thing I was thinking of with the term, mixed media.

Thank you so much for joining in with us with such a pretty project.
