Mixed Media Monday - Hearts and Wings


This week I am thrilled to have the very talented Fannie as guest host on Mixed Media Monday
and she has chosen the theme "hearts and wings". This was the perfect opportunity for me to play with some painting faces again. This piece is done water colour paper and I used water colour pencils and a couple of other media to paint the picture. The first scan shows the painting on it's own, so you can see it well, and the second image shows it in the cute little frame I found at the Salvo's op shop for only $2. Of course, it didn't scan so well with the glass, but I wanted to show you how it will be displayed. Thanks Fannie for such a fun challenge!
