Mixed Media Monday - Harmony


The theme on Mixed Media Monday this week, chosen by our special guest host Karen, is "Harmony". It's a great theme, and I wish I could have found a little more harmony in my life in amongst all the chaos. My daughter was hit by a car on Wednesday night, and it's been a worrying and busy time for us all. She is home from hospital now - a fracture in her leg and stitches in her head, but otherwise OK, thankfully.

The only time I've had to do any art was to snatch a few minutes here and there, to try to keep up with the online workshop I'm doing - Organic Backgrounds, with Paulette Insall. So that's all I've got to show you this week - a work in progress - after week three. But I have been trying to use harmonious colours and layers to create this, so I guess it fits the theme :-)
