artistic medium:

In the arts, a medium is a material used by an artist or designer to create a work.

I have showed this before, but for anyone visiting me from the Really Reasonable Ribbon site....( thank you for hopping over here ).... I want to link you up with Dynamic Auto Painter, the coolest paint program. You upload your picture and then choose which ever artistic medium you want, lots to choose from. Now, I have not altered any brushes, or hues, so far I am happy just to upload my picture, select the medium and hit It does everything for you and you can stop the painting at any time so you can get as little or as much effect as you want. On this picture of Wren, I let it run to about 20,000 brush strokes.
You can also see the Dynamic painter disclaimer running along the bottom of the picture, as long as you don't pay for it, you will have that. Obviously I am not paying for it ;0 I LIKE FREE.
I used Cricut's Paper Trimmings to cut out Wren's nameplate and butterflies for her hanger, first out of chipboard so it would be nice and sturdy and then in the coordinating paper. Next I hand stitched around the name plate and then her name was cut from the Cricut's  Don Juan cartridge and glued down.
