Anyhow, I decided to have a play with some mixed media. This started life as an oval piece of MDF. I glued on some scrunched up tissue paper, then some MDF and cardboard shapes (some die cut), then painted on some black gesso.
I don't have any of the beautiful shimmery paints that are often used in these mixed media pieces, so decided to try out just using gilding waxes, and was rather pleased with the results :-)
I never intended this to be a finished piece-just a practice piece. But I really like it, so may well hang it on my wall in my craft room.
