Mixed Media Monday - Enchanted

This week at Mixed Media Monday we have yet another new guest host - Lori! All of the guests hosts help to make MMM such a fun place to play. Lori gave us the challenge prompt of "enchanted". Firstly, I must say I'm sorry my piece is so crooked in the pic - but you'll get the idea. It seems like ages since I've done a painting, so I anxious to do one this week. My piece is done on a stretched canvas 8x12 in or 20.3x25.4 cm and painted with Golden fluid acrylic paints with the addition of tissue paper, some computer generated images and some Victorian scrap butterflies. The dangling butterfly is made from some el cheapo jewellery that I purchased from Ebay. It was all silvery and glitzy, so I gave it an aged appearance with some paints.
