Mixed Media Monday - Lace


Do you hoard vintage lace? I know that I do. I love looking at the intricate patterns in it and using it as "just the right touch" in my artwork. It adds femininity and delicacy. This assemblage was created in the bottom of a cigar box. The background was created with scrapbook papers and beeswax. This grumpy wee girl doesn't know how lucky she is to be riding atop this very fine looking robin. This is my entry for Mixed Media Monday this week.

Maybe the girl is grumpy because her mother told her it was time to stop riding the bird and go to bed. That would make ME grumpy! Another beautiful piece, Heather!

Stop by and see my very first art challenge piece. I'm new to all this, so don't expect too much!

Hugs,
Lori
