Mixed Media




Perhaps the fact that I had a recent birthday, or something in the air, that makes me want a change..
 I paint mostly traditional watercolor. Paint, water and brush.
However, just in the past week I've gotten the urge to do watercolors with some papers, text, etc added. Mixed Media .
So this is Numero Uno .. watercolor flowers, handmade papers, text and some touches of gold .. I had no plan, ( do I ever)? just started with the delicate flowers and so on. 
Yes, think I'll play with this for a while..
I've always had my hand in making tiny journals, glue, papers and so the journey continues.. BJ

  5. Now this is simply beautiful, Barbra Joan! I have to do a mixed media piece myself soon and I've been agonizing over it. Would that I had thought of something like this!! I do have some homemade papers that I plan to use but no set idea...yet.
