I am honored to be the guest host for this week's Mixed Media Monday challenge! Participating in MMM is the very reason I started a blog last year and since that time, I am proud to say that I have not missed a prompt. Meeting and being inspired by such talented artists on a weekly basis has become such an important part of my creative life and I am forever grateful for that. Thank you for allowing me to present this week's theme: Giggles / Laughter. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did . . .
This collage was made as a Mother's day gift for my Mom who is, of course, Kendra's biggest fan. The picture was taken of baby girl in her second year, and features vintage and decorative papers including wallpaper, ledgers, nursery rhymes and characters in addition to other meaningful empheria. It was painted and "aged" with acrylic and includes over stamping and white gel pen. True to form, there is a single Swarovski crystal at the ear.
I used original vintage papers on this piece and thought it would be interesting to ask what you prefer when doing your work - originals or copies? I will take stock of your responses and let you know the results in next week's post. . .
Thank you for looking! To see all the pieces on Giggles / Laughter (I know I can't wait!), please check out http://www.mixedmediamonday.wordpress.com/.
