Mixed Media Monday - What you loved doing

Happy New Year, everyone! To round off year, I chose the theme "show us what you loved doing during 2008", for Mixed Media Monday. It was a hard choice for me, but I narrowed it down to two things - then the painted backgrounds finally won. This canvas board is 5 x 7 inches or12.7 x 17.8 cms. The background is done with lots of different layers of acrylic paint, with some paint pen and sharpie thrown in for good measure :-) The image was computer generated in grey scale, and then I coloured it with Caran D'arch Neocolors II crayons. The wings were printed onto acetate to give a transparent effect.

Seasons Greetings

Wishing everyone a happy, peaceful and safe Christmas season. Make the most of the time you spend with your loved ones. I would say don't over indulge - but with all the goodies accumulating in my house I can't promise that I won't, LOL!

Mixed Media Monday - Gold

With Christmas fast approaching I thought I would issue an easy challenge on Mixed Media Monday this week - gold. My piece is done on a 4 x 4 inch (10.2 x 10.2 cm) canvas board. The background is painted with acrylic paints. Then I have simply added a computer generated image and lots of lovely German Scrap from the wonderful Lisa at Collage Stuff! Simple and easy - I think we can all use a bit of simplicity this time of year :-)

Mixed Media Monday - Paper Dolls/Art Dolls

Patty is our new guest host over at Mixed Media Monday this week and she has set such a fun challenge - paper dolls/art dolls. I really wanted to do a paper doll and will still do so if I can find this week. But in the meantime - I was really drawn to making a button doll - a Christmas Angel of sorts, grin! Thanks for the fun challenge, Patty!
