Mixed Media Collages

I've been trying mixed media collages, where anything goes! I used the images from the graphicsfairy   and was inspired by the art of christytomlinson . The technique is fun and easy - I started by applying French book pages to the canvas, then adding paints. To achieve the circles, I brushed paint on bubble wrap, then pressed it down. The squares and birds are stencils. I also used a butterfly stamp. There are lots of ways to embellish the collage, use your imagination and what you have available.

I would appreciate it if you would leave a comment.....
