So I have recently started doing some mixed media pieces and I love doing it so much.  I am just starting out and trying things so i would love feedback

The one I made for my husband based on a quote that is important to him (the bird is from Calvin and Hobbes)



This one I made for my best friend for her 30th birthday.  The paperbag princess is cut out of felt I made.


And I made this one for my daughter (once upon a time my plan had been to do Calvin and Hobbes for her wall, it never happened, so I made something more suited to her current tastes)


And here it is on her wall

Lovely work. I like how chirpy and cheerful all the pieces are. And I sooo love texture in art.

I agree, they are cheerful! It's always so nice to have home made things hanging up....they add so much warmth and character to a space.

thanks so much, I love learning about adding texture, so many things that were never talked about in school.

I am a huge fan of texture in art (haha I always have to restrain myself from touching things in galleries)!  Love the personal nature of all your pieces as well.  totally recognized the paper bag princess Grin
