Mixed Media Fun!

Over the past several months, I've been experimenting with different techniques for mixed media collage. I wanted to add a lot of texture with a lot of different mediums.  Here's the end results...

I drew her face on vintage French book paper.   My goal was to draw a decent face!

My daughter was the inspiration for this next one. She has a very crazy stressful job!

In an Attempt to Balance her Life, She lost her Head!
           I drew her face on vintage ledger paper.

I discovered Plaster of my new favorite things! Messy, but Fun!

Free Form in Plaster Craft.  Can't wait to do more!

Happiness is a vintage baby dress!

I think this is my favorite! I bought this vintage cutie on Etsy. It was a very very pale yellow when I started. My secret ingredient?  Liquid Nails!

                                      I wanted to do something really whimsical for Halloween...

The gnarly tree is plaster craft. I had so much fun with these colors!

                                                          Last, but not least...Pumpkins!

Be Grateful!

That's it for awhile. Time to get my house in order for Thanksgiving and the arrival of family. I'll still be sewing...not quite as messy!
