My new mixed media piece was created just because she had to come out, no challenges or swaps. She is taking me on one heck of a journey, and I'm still hanging on. The image of the lady is a fantastic reproduction image that Gale from Paper Whimsy has been making from her collection of antique books with vintage images. When I see these beautiful regal ladies, my heart melts, and I have to buy them and try to do something wonderful with them. I can say I'm pretty happy with the way this turned out. I feel like I am finally getting onto paper and mediums what is in my head, as far as images and feelings are concerned. And you know me, always with the bird, always wanting to fly! I also used some beautiful papers in here (I loooooove beautiful papers!), a part of a vintage book page, a vintage filigree flower from my collection, tiny colored blue rhinestones, and I stamped a piece of copper, and tinted the letters with acrylic paint. Let's not forget all the paint, and super heavy gel medium, which has just become my best friend. Thanks for always joining me on my journey!
