So I got on a mixed media kick on pumped out these two things. For the first things I've ever really done, I'm really proud!
This piece consists of fabric from an old skirt, vintage paged from Victorian adult novels, white out, fishing line, and little faux pearl beads. No glue was used, everything is sewn on, and then the string is taped to the back of the canvas. Because the oil paint took so long to dry, this piece took about 3 weeks to finish.

This was really a test peice to see how difficult hand-razoring cardboard was. It was hard. Colored with purple sharpie and detailed with faux pearl beads sewn onto the cardboard. This was finished in about an hour.

The success of these have given me the courage to do my next piece that I've been thinking about for a while, which will be a play on the childhood craft of melting crayon shavings between layers of wax paper!
