My mom has just had an extensive operation and is hanging out in the Jubilee in Victoria for a week or so. I wanted to make her a "She Art" of when she was young. She had long braids and always wore such fashionable clothing. I hope she likes it. I love how the colours are somewhat muted and how the feeling of earthy-ness comes out. Thanks for swinging by.

More mixed media

Another canvas done with mixed media...acrylic paints, stamping, rub-ons, masks...just to name a few. The whole process is very cool. Once you start you literally can't stop. One more rub-on... one more colour...oiy vay!!! The mod podge I had was actually the glossy type but I think I will buy some matte as it is quite shiney and difficult to photograph. It doesn't look bad just glossy.

Mixed media - a new adventure

Yes I know. I've been absent. I won a class on-line working with mixed media and canvas and finally got around to creating my first piece. The course is called "She Art" and the brains behind it is Christy Tomlinson . Check it out. You may want to try something different but I will tell you, it is addicting. I know I will be making many more and plan to make some for gifts.
