Mixed Media Monday - What was she thinking?


I chose the theme "what was she/he thinking" for the challenge prompt on Mixed Media Monday this week to see what all the clever participants could come up with. My piece is done on a 5x7 inch or 12.7x17.8 cm canvas board. I used pieces of vintage papers, some computer generated images and a few other collage elements to make the collage, was then covered in wax. I love the way was mellows everything beneath it.

I'm looking forward to seeing all of these - bet they are going to be great fun! Let's hope she was happy with her Prince and he didn't turn out to be a toad in disguise!

You're right, wax mellows this beautiful piece. If my experience is worth anything -- a LOT of frogs ....

Hi Diane! Yes, wax is my new favorite too - plus it usually smells so good! This is such a great piece: the muted colors work so well with the vintage figures and the frog bit is great! I love this one so much! Kristin xo
