Mixed Media Collage.

Investigating yellow as a background within a collage. Tried to decollage, but this did tear the painted background a little. A bit more texture!!

Rings of Life.

The current challenge over on the PaperArtsy blog this time is Vintage Neutrals.

I started off by using PaperArtsy Infusions Lemoncello and a small touch of Violet Storms onto some calico.

Some stamping with PaperArtsy Hot Picks 1501.

Originally I was going to use the piece of wood as a paperweight, but decided to wrap the calico around the wood.

I thought maybe I should have stuck to my original idea as most of the Infusions and stamping were hidden within the layers, so when I saw the question mark from the same stamp set, I stamped several times.

Added some flicks of the same Infusions with a paintbrush to add some interest to the grey board.

I am glad I pushed myself to try something different from my original idea, it reminds me of the rings that are formed within wood as they grow!!
