Mixed Media Monday - The Games People Play
We have had so many wonderful guest hosts over at Mixed Media Monday that I haven't had to host a challenge for ages. However, this week it's my turn again. I chose "the games people play" and then had no idea what I'd do for it, LOL. I also wanted to get all messy with paint and mediums, but in the end I ended up collaging more than anything. This is an 8x8 inch or 20x20cm (approx) size canvas that I turned over and used the back of, to get a nice little niche to work with. Then it was basically a matter of collaging lots of images of different games, adding gesso and paint, lots of real game pieces, a red heart overlaid with a gold toned metal heart and attached with a game spinner. The king and queen's crowns are actually gold too, but they dind't photograph very well because of the niche.
