Over the last two weeks we have had some wonderful meaningful challenges on Mixed Media Monday so this week I decided to mix it up a little. A little bit of fun and nonsense - "marvellous moustaches"! My piece is done on canvas board again 12.7 x 17.8 cms or 5 x 7 inches. I've used lots of fun collage elements and computer generated images and coloured with oil pastels.

This week I've chosen "mothers and daughters" as the theme for Mixed Media Monday. I thought it was time to put aside the oil pastels for a while, and decided on fabric art this week. The piece is done on a canvas board 12.7 x 17.8 cm or 5 x 7 inches. The background is done with zap cloth and an assortment of laces painted with several acrylic paints. The picture was printed onto a cotton fabric sheet and I coloured it with prisma colour pencils. This was mounted onto a piece of stitch and tear, which was painted and stamped with a rubber stamp. Then I added some ribbon and a flower lace motif which I painted with acrylic paints and added a faux pearl brad as the finishing touch. Truly mixed media, this one!

I chose "pink" as the challenge on Mixed Media Monday this week in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Although this is a cause near and dear to me, working with pink is completely outside my comfort zone, grin! Anyway, this is what I ended up with - a painted collage on a canvas board (again) 12.7x17.8 cms or 5.7 inches. It was created with the help of lots of collage elements underneath some gesso and blended oil pastels, a computer generated image, some ribbon, chipboard letters which I painted and a flower and brad.

Beth is back on Mixed Media Monday with a new challenge for us - "maps". I have a bit of a crush on these collages with blended oil pastels at the moment, so I opted to do another one for this challenge. There are maps behind the man and woman, along with a compass, penny farthing bicycle etc. I fancy the couple are trying to find their way back together again :-) The piece is done on a 12.7 x 17.8 cm or 5 x 7 inch canvas board.
