After seeing the beautiful show by Kris Mitchell, I wanted to make my very own Summer mixed media piece. I started by combining rose petals with glitter. An acrylic background came first, using sponges. Refinement of the border occurred, using a mosaic of ripped paper. And then came the googley eyes…
Now the piece is hanging out in the garage where it is receiving multiple coats of polyurethane. The rose petals are standing up on their bases, and they will need to be preserved. It should be ready in another 3 days, or 3 coats.
