Whenever I feel afraid, I remember the little sparrows in Matthew 10:29:
“Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father.”
This scripture reminds me of the intimate care our Heavenly Father provides for us. So in order to help process my grief over the recent loss of loved ones, I created a mixed media collage I titled, “Oh Little Sparrow.”
I’d like to share the steps for how to make this mixed media collage.
Begin with a weathered frame. Apply scrapbook pieces by using Golden Gel Medium.
“My poem onto Ivory Fine Parchment Paper,” by Southworth.
I like to tear my paper by using the glass from the frame because you can see where you want to make the tear.
Apply Grumbacher burnt umber acrylic paint to the corners where the background will show through.
Apply Golden Gel Medium to the back of the scrapbook paper and to the canvas:
Apply the Golden Gel Medium to the front of the poem:
Use Golden Gel Medium to apply various scrapbook papers and embellishments. I used the following:
K&Company Feuilles/Hojas Designer Paper (I bought this at Michaels)
Jim Holtz “idea-ology”
Apply Jim Holtz distress ink pads to age the paper:
