Something new

Tried something new today. I have been looking at mixed media art for a while and I decided to attempt it. Browsing Pinterest, there are many mixed media artists that use many elements to bring their art work to life.
For this piece I used a dollar store canvas and leftovers from other projects. I wanted this to be a project that i could learn from, how the materials work together and react to the gesso. When you gesso over a blue flower for example it takes on a purple hue, the butterflies were a coloured wood so the colour bled when the gesso was applied over top. The doilies, when modge podged on the canvas,were delicate so you have to be careful they don’t tear.
For my next attempt I will gather the pieces and use them specific for the design.
