Mixed Media Monday "Layers"


The theme for the week starting June 1 is Layers. I made a 4 x 4, it has about 6 different layers, though that is hard to see. I started to collage with some scraps of an antiques womans magazine. Then I went over it with texture paste, Gesso and acrylic paint. Then I used some back ground stamps and finally added ephemera, an image and some metal embellishments. I've called it "Angels Looking After Me"

Astrid, this is a gorgeous example of layered art. I love the balance and the colors as well as the neat flourishes and ephemera.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
