Beauty Full Mixed Media

I managed to get at least a few creative juices flowing in my studio over the weekend. Even though I've still been doing Minecraft birthday party-related stuff for my grandson's upcoming party, I found time to get a Mixed Media painting done in the studio too on Sunday. I'm just calling it Beauty Full. :)

I used tissue paper to create texture for the flower. There are some bits of torn newsprint tissue paper here and there, some rolled on acrylic paint, some brushed on paint, and some dragged on paint too (using the edge of a piece of foam core). I also stenciled a bit in a few spots, and the letters were added with cardstock and stickers. The flower is kind of a stylized poppy. Looks a bit more like a peony, but hey, stuff happens. Sometimes you just gotta go with the flow...of the paint.
