Mixed Media Canvas Collages: Spreading Joy and Cherishing Today

Happy Thursday and I hope that you're having a great day! Recently I was dabbling with some mixed media canvasses using vintage photos and acrylic paints (shared in previous posts), and I created these two sweet pieces.

"Spread Joy"

I enjoyed playing with this canvas, 
collaging a sweet photo of this pretty
little girl which I tinted with a little bit
of acrylic paint.
I added a bird, little words,
and some lovely old lace...

...after building up layers of of acrylic paints
in neutral colors for the background...

...along with some patterned papers and vintage
sheet music...


"Cherish Today"

I used a similar process for this one,
substituting pretty fibers and a vintage mother
of pearl belt buckle for lace...

I couldn't believe that in one of my vintage children's books
I found words to a poem called "Hoop Song".
How lucky was that!

Both of these pieces are for sale in my Etsy shop.


Have a wonderful day!
