I made these when I wanted something soothing and simple to hang on our walls...this is in our entry way.  I used watercolors first and then drew on top with charcoal, and sprayed with a final fixative when done.  I've been watching a lot of Nick Jr. with my son, and the dandelion fields on Ni Hao Kai Lan must have influenced my subconscious...lol

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

That's really really pretty Cheesy
So simple but so gorgeous and you can tell what it's meant to be!
I love mixed media, but have never thought about using charcoal and watercolour as the base, awesome Grin
