Mixed media wip

davI’ve been working on a mixed media piece and this is as far as I’ve got.  It needs a focal image or quote or something.  I just don’t know what to add…

Feel free to make suggestions!

As it’s #supplysaturday to create this I’ve used :

  • Distress oxide inks from Ranger
  • Paper Artsy Fresco paints
  • Distress inks
  • Stencils
  • Gold paint from Cosmic Shimmer
  • Texture paste and gold acrylic paint
  • Perfect pearls and water spray

Remembrance

Poppies by Angela Porter small

It took me a couple of days to draw and colour these poppies rising through and floating on the green swirls.

It was a very intuitive drawing, and as I completed it I realised that the poppies are like memories, remembrances that rise with and float upon the currents of thoughts that flow through our conscious minds.  Sometimes they stay below the surface, not forgotten but resting, at other times they rise up singly or, as in this case, in a plethora.  Sad, painful even, in some cases, in others joyful.

Quite fitting as we leave Hallowe’en behind and move towards Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday.

I’ve added this design to products available in both my Vida Collection and my Zippi Portfolio.
