Mixed Media Monday - Opposites Attract
I chose a very open theme for Mixed Media Monday this week - opposites attract. I was thinking along the lines of black and white, but in the end opted for vintage creams and sepia with a splash of red for contrast. The piece is done on a canvas board 12.7 x 17.8 cm or 5 x 7 inches. The background is made up of vintage papers and music sheet, and other collage elements, and then distressed with gesso and distress inks. Then I added lots of vintage laces, and the woman was printed onto a fabric sheet. Some tiny, tiny buttons and a flower motif were the finishing touches and the contrast needed for this challenge.
