Mixed Media Collage: "Dancing"

Valentine's Day is around the corner, and I couldn't let it pass by without creating a piece of art to honor this day of love. 

I took a slightly different approach with another mixed media collage, and it speaks of Valentine's Day only through the use of pink.


I have wanted to use this beautiful 
ballerina photo and the
sweet vintage sheet music
 for a long while...

I delicately colored her dress
to match the green in the Basic Grey
paper scrap...

I also used a piece of the lovely pink 
vintage velvet ribbon that I showed you in a 
recent post,
along with a mother of pearl belt buckle...

This time I made use of one of my long 
forgotten rubber art stamps,
and cut out each word separately.
It felt good to use this one again!
I shaded her skin ever so slightly...

The best part about these pieces is that there is no requirement
to be perfect with your painting.
And that is certainly a perk for me!!


Many thanks for coming by.
