2017 30 Day Challenge Day 30

Love Letters
Mixed media collage 6 X 6

The last day of the challenge! Whew! That was a challenge indeed as there were a lot of thing going on in my life. It shows me that I can carve out time for art even if life wants to get in the way. 
I love this last collage. Who doesn't like to get a love letter? It's a love letter to me for getting through the challenge and for all of you who followed me along the way and for all of the others who attempted to keep up with the 30 days. Hooray for us!
Thanks for the encouragement and the comments, it really kept me going.

2017 30 Day Challenge Day 29

Bird Button 3
Mixed media collage

This collage is the third and last in the series. Sadly I have run out of bird buttons. I love the paper on the bottom of this collage. It was made by painting multiple colors of fairly thick paint and gesso on tissue. The colors were swirled with a texture tool. It's tricky because the tissue is fragile and will tear easily when it is wet so you have to move quickly and gently. When it dries you can use either side of the tissue because the colors soak through the paper. This is the front, tomorrow's collage will have the back side. One more day!
