Paint Party Friday

It's always fun to participate in Paint Party Friday, hosted by Eva and Kristin

This week has been busy and stressful, however I was able to finish a small piece for my second "Art Only" Etsy shopI'll be added some pieces to it throughout the weekend.  My first Etsy shop  will morph into mostly vintage ephemera and other vintage items.  

This piece is an ACEO sized mixed media canvas (3 1/2 x 2 1/2), created with layers of  vintage book pages, acrylic paints, stenciling, (all left over from another project) and inks. 
The heart is leftover painted paper pieces adhered to heavy back chipboard, cut out and varnished. 

All these bits and pieces left over from other projects worked together to create this little canvas. 

Have a wonderful Friday, everyone! And do stop in to see what the other fabulous PPF artists are working on this week.

This is such a pretty little piece. I think it's a great example of how collage and texture add interest to a simple design.

It is fascinating to see how much beauty you can put on such a small space. I love this - it is so beautiful! Gorgeous color combination.

This looks so organic, as though it wasn't painted so much as just drifted together. I really like that.
