11 x 14 Canvas
So, so late! I thought about skipping this week's Mixed Media Monday prompt altogether, but then realised that I would be giving up a 16 week "streak" of continual postings. Not wanting to break it (kinda proud of myself) I came up with the following for I Am Woman . . .
I was inspired by a beautiful framed mirror I saw while out of town that was done on wood with words cut from magazines. The one I saw featured sayings about wine and wine making, but what could be more appropriate than a women's magazine for a piece on being a woman? Everything here was taken from this month's In Style and predominately featured quotes from Reese Witherspoon such as; "I am an open book. I'm not about intimidating women or making them feel like less than what they are." I think I love her a little bit more . . .
This collage was done on a black Gesso relief background and was layered with charcoal, white acrylic stamping, glitter, crystals and fabric. The "Chick" is in the middle of all the media-driven sentiments and her only response is a quiet, "roar."
Thanks for looking! To check out more pieces on I Am Woman, please check out www.mixedmediamonday.wordpress.com.
