I had an hour this morning to attempt my first mixed media piece of art. I painted the blue background on my canvas last night and got to work this morning. This is what I started with:
And this is the finished piece:
Forgive the picture.. it was taken on a pillow on our back patio chair, in the early morning light, but I was so excited to share!
It is scrapbook paper and painted paper glued on a painted canvas. It has a lot of texture and I even added some glitter for good measure - in the sky, on the branches and on the butterfly - but you can't see that too well in this picture.
Where has mixed media been all my life? I loved this process.
I think this will be my first listing in my soon to be re-opened shop! Yippee!
