Mixed Media Monday - Mothers and Daughters
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!
