New Green Paper challenge!


Even though I just made a new post I gotta make this one too! A new challenge at Green Paper! Mine is called My love is not for sale! I started with a canvas board and applied vintage dress pattern paper, first I wrinkled it up then glued it down. Then I started with washes of water color and then sprinkled some sea salt here and there to absord some. I wrinkled and burned the check and added some ink as well. I stamped a red heart on fabric glued some string around it and added a hook and her key to her heart. The bird holding the sign that says My love is not for sale. Oh, I also added layers of stamps too. Then I went to a photo editing program and made it a bit richer and added some more floral swirls and such! Hope you like it! Thanks for the wonderful challenges Green Paper...they are wonderful for someone who has always made art but just discovered mixed media!

I love what you did for this challenge, Lisa. I just wish I could see a little bit more of the details! It looks great though, beautiful colors and ideas. i would not guess that you had just discovered mixed media, that's for sure!
