More Mixed Media Madness!



Here are a few more pieces I worked on this weekend. I am having fun with the backgrounds and layers.
I did the portraits on paper and then glued them to a piece of plywood,
I collaged the background with paint,
various papers, stamps, rub-ons, stamps, metal charms, trims, and glitter. To finish the pieces I used different products. I melted beeswax on one, used a glossy varnish on two of them. I used a matte mod podge
on the pieces that I wanted to have
more texture on the surface. I even dug through my ancient stash of broken costume jewelry for some
larger embellishments.

Hello,
I am doing an organic visit to wish my friends old and new, Happy Saturday!

What's an organic visit'? It's one that takes a natural course through an almost viral form. I'm visiting people YOU have had visit, and then visiting people they have had visit, and so on! Great way to reach out and talk to people.

Your pieces are delightful,
