I have always been a fan of mixed media.
on canvas with found objects
honest to goodness, goodness.
I made one for my mom last year for mothers day, and she had loved it.
I just had a problem understanding the background concept of a really super layered art journal or canvas.
Thanks to Christy Tomlinson's She Art Workshop, now i know.
and I am THRILLED!
yes sirree. :)
Do you see her little Le Cirque Graphic 45 dress?
When I got to the part of the girl where i was painting her hair and face in, it all dawned on me.
she was a reflection of me. (she however is way cuter)
It was me remembering my mom. Lots of bittersweet tears this morning.
Creating art, in any medium, seems to really come from a different place if you let your heart free.
I realize that sounds mushy, sappy, UNtrue...
but it made a difference in how this piece of art turned out.
Now, I'm a believer.!
