Mixed Media Monday - Play







Do you ever just start a project without a real goal in mind and let your creativity and muse take you where they will. Well, that's exactly what happened when I created this tin. I dutifully sanded and gessoed it then left it on my art table. Next I put a couple of coats of paint on it and again it sat for a while. I'd pick it up and turn it this way and that until one day I felt inspired to delve into its possibilities. The end result is much more elaborate and with far more depth than I had originally anticipated. It is so freeing to just allow oneself to play every once in a while. This is my entry for the Mixed Media Monday challenge this week.
