Mixed Media Monday - Blues and Purples


This week on MMM, we have the lovely Rosie as our guest host, and Rosie has chosen to go with the colour combination of blue and purple. This piece was done using the techniques I learned in the Organic Backgrounds with Paulette Insall. It is done on a 5 x 7 inch (12.7 x 17.8 cm) canvas board, with lots and lots of layers of acrylic paints, with stamping stencils etc. It was great to snatch a little time each day to get this piece completed, amongst the craziness that is my life at the moment.
