5 x 7 canvas panel
This week's Mixed Media Monday challenge, Warm It Up, gave me the perfect excuse to play with some vintage items I recently found at a yard sale. I choose a bold yellow as my main color and paired it with a piece of vintage music and an image from a 1950's greeting card.
"Golden Girl" was created by first adhering the sheet music to a 5 x 7 canvas panel. The exposed words read, "you grow sweeter as the years go by." To that, I added a carefully cut image of a little girl which was outlined with metallic gold gel pen. The card already had some iridescent glitter on the headband and flowers, so I played up the shine by placing a few orange Swarovski crystals on the roses. Final touches included yellow pom pom trim glued to the bottom and picture hanging wire pulled through punched holes with brads on top. A piece of ripped pink toile fabric was then added the top right for balance.
Thank you for your visit. I'm eager to see what everyone else does with their warm palette. . .
