This is a 5x7 mixed media collage.  The photos are just camera phone pics but I wanted to share and have no patience.  It's a canvas board base with papers, ink, watercolor, acrylics, paper tape, joint compound...maybe more?  I forget.



When I varnished it, the blue ink smeared all over, so it looks different now to what it did when I thought it was finished.  Ha.

The two goddesses are temporary tattoos.  I like how the transfer left them a little rough around the edges.  And middle.





The heart is my favorite.  Just a printed out heart with watercolors and ink, then added Glossy Accents to make it glisten and add dimension.  The join compound stencil is called pomegranate so I added a dot or two of Glossy Accents to random "seeds" to give them a bit of pop also.



The whole thing turned out a bit darker than I wanted but if I scan it in I may be able to lighten the prints, at least.  Smiley

This is lovely! You can really see the layers of love you put into it. What a smart idea to use temporary tattoos! I'm definitely remembering that little tip Smiley.
