Mixed Media Monday - Time of Day

This week Beth is the guest host at Mixed Media Monday, and what a fun theme she chose - "time of day". I decided to try a new (to me) technique for this one, using water solluble oil pastels - without water. The peice is on canvas board, 8x10 inches or 20.3x26.4 cm, which was completely covered with collage elements, and then coloured with the oil pastels. What fun - thanks Beth!

I've been wanting to try oil pastels, but haven't wanted to buy them just to try them! (squeak) This is a lovely piece, Diane. Thanks for sharing.
