Mixed Media: Cheerful Little Flower

Feeling cheerful today, as we are expecting some special house guests for the weekend! My daughter and grandson are coming, and I’m looking forward to their visit!

This project was inspired by a lesson in Wild Art Summer. I used a 2x4x4 board that my husband cut for me. I covered all sides with gesso and then used book paper (cut the leaves, stem, and petals from it) and acrylics (some with glass bead gel mixed in). Some of the petals were created with pieces of gesso-ed muslin.
