But busy good! That precious grandaughter of mine is occupying my time, but mostly my heart, 5 months old today!
I'm one challenge behind for the Melange Mixed Media Challenge
The current challenge is Hugs and Kisses, this piece is my playtime for the last challenge, Rain.
Really different for me, but I've made several pieces of handmade paper and I'm trying to find ways to incorporate them into mixed media and collage pieces. Since I haven't sized the paper in the process, it's an experiment to see how the paper accepts different mediums. Acrylic washes turned out well on other pieces. This piece uses only alcohol inks and I love the effect of the bleed, although it does bleed to the reverse side easily if not used very very sparingly. And sparingly isn't always what I'm after.
Anywhoooo, this simple little treasure is a keeper for me, it turned out happy and I will probably will clip it right up in my studio.
