Mixed Media Altered Treewood

Hello creative soul, today I have a new project using some natural elements for you.
こんにちは 今日はちょっとナチュラル風の作品をご紹介したいと思います。

This year we have an EXTREMELY hot summer here in Japan. It is almost unbearable for day time to go out, but after sunset, I like to imagine going to the forest , under the purple sky and find some secrets inside the nature. This piece is created with that images in mind.

It is also to enter for the current June challenge in Mixed Media Place.

I purchased some Japanese cypress wood pieces in a scrap event a few weeks earlier. When I saw the moodboard of June, I immediately had the idea to use these wood pieces to create a scene with the gorgeous colors of red, dark blue and orange.

The moodboard also inspires me of straight lines, the softness of petals, seeds of wild plants and the attitudes towards future(tomorrow). That was why I picked the word sticker.

 The Finnabair Mica Flakes Frosted is one of my fav items lately cos it can represent some many different things depends on your mood and the usage on a project. Here in these two tree wood pieces, they represents the strength of the plants even in the extremely difficult environment of summer.


I like that when the blue colors meets the red, they automatically turned into a romantic purple tone just like the beautiful sunset of a beautiful day.

In this creation, butterflies fly free in the beautiful forest of sunset and create the most stunning colors for tomorrow.

I fully enjoy entering into this challenge. Hope this may inspire you as well <3
