New Hearts Canvas

I made this 8X8 canvas for my friends birthday. She has a funky clock with the same color scheme, and wanted to hang it with that.
The base is a sheet of 90 lb watercolor paper. I added many different handmade papers and torn pages from books. I used white paint on a foam stamp, a heart stamp on paper, fabric, felt, button, beeswax over the music stanza. I glued it to a large piece of felt and then onto the canvas which was painted in Titan Buff. The sides were adorned with light molding paste applied through a stencil.  Here is a side view of that. It is a fabulous look :)  Thank you for your comments, always welcomed!

Mixed Media Monday Challenge - ART!

This weeks Challenge at Mixed Media Monday is simply, ART!  In creating this 5X5 collage, I decided to try, or add, a few different things. Here is my entry. Click on the image to enlarge:

5X5, one and a half inch wide mixed media canvas. Painted with Titan Buff. Stenciled on light molding paste on front.  Glued some handmade pieces of paper over the stencil.  Ripped up a piece of paper painted with acrylics, outlined in gold, and glued on top. Added a few stamps, buttons, lace and dragonfly punch.  Glued on computer generated haiku by me, and covered with beeswax. The haiku was inspired after a bunch of friends had a prayer circle for another friend going through breast cancer. I also embellished the 4 sides.
