Mixed Media Monday - Opposites





Here is my entry for the theme opposites. I have used several opposites. Adult and child, Young and old, Warm colours and Cold colours, Innocent and Guilty. The idea emerged during creation. I started off wanting to create a contrast of warm and cold colours. I felt I need to add images so I added these from art-e-zine ( free vintage images online) and then developed the wording etc. I have transformed a washing tablet box before I made a ribbon holder but I covered that one with paper. This one I painted with acrylic paint and then sprayed with three tones of glimmer mists. I also inked it. I used acetate and glass paints for the flowers. The guilty picture has some glue still on it but I wanted you to see WIP.

Wow, so ambitious, and I haven't even begun anything yet. You have shamed me with how much you've put into this. Nice.
