Mixed Media Monday - Purple and Gold




The theme on Mixed Media Monday this week is purple and gold, and my friend Gerda is our guest host. I decided to use my little canvas and easel for this project. The canvas is only tiny, smaller than an ATC - probably about 2.25 by 3.25 inches. I used texture paste, and tissue paper for the texture, added a collage image in goldy tones, and painted it with purple and gold luminere paints. I finished it off with a gold star brad, gold wire and some tiny gold beads in three of the corners. This was such a fun project - thanks for the challenge, Gerda. It was nice to do something in colours after all the vintage stuff I've been doing lately!
