Happy Friday to all.
Another week just whizzed by.
My 4x6 art this week has berries and winter greenery. It's a mixed media piece combining stenciling and collage on a gesso'd and painted background. I used Tim Holtz's Festive Layering Stencil and his Festive Greenery Sizzlit Strip die. I also used Distress inks, colored pencils, Posca paint markers, Pitt Artist Big Brush pens, gel pens, Crystal Glaze. I also fussy-cut some of the greenery and the sentiment from Christmas A.T.C. Collection art papers.
This is what I began with, in my backgrounds envelope. This was a piece of Grafix packaging that I'd gesso'd, painted with a few shades of yellow acrylic paint and then some alcohol inks drips. Can't remember why...I figured I was just playing to see how dripping worked and looked. At any rate, those white spots made me think of plant pots, so I drew a couple in the white spaces.
Close-up angle shot just because I liked it.
One last look.
This wil be displayed with my favorite Christmas cards and other decorations.
Thanks for the visit and have a great day!

On my first entry, my answer was our children. For this entry, my answer is my mother-in-law. She's 94 and loves receiving anything I make her, so I always try to make her something extra special.
Took inspiration from the colors, Christmas, winter and the tree (greenery)
