mixed mEDIEology Monday 3/4/13 – Spring Flowers From Truck Tires

Posted on: March 4, 2013

Welcome to mixed mEDIEology Monday!

This weeks project is the first collaboration of Thrift Shop Thursdays and mixed mEDIEology Monday. If you missed last weeks post, here is what you need to know…

Each week I will be making  a (video) trip to the thrift store. I will then use the items I find on Thursday to create a project to share with you on Mondays.  If you want to see what I got this week, you can find that video here.

This weeks project is a mixed media painting. I am soooooooo tired of the cold weather and Spring can not get here soon enough for me! I need warmth, sunshine and lush things growing.


One of the bags I bought at the thrift shop last week was a wooden model of a truck. The round pieces I used in this painting were “supposed” to be truck tires, but I saw them as flowers, so I painted them, glitterfied them and stuck them in a Spring Garden!


You can watch the full video below. If you enjoy my videos, simply click the subscribe button (for the blog and on my YouTube channel) and don’t forget to share it with your friends 😉
