Mixed Media – Grey Dreams

Hello all,

It’s Friday night and time for a new blog post of my latest project.  I wanted to create a canvas with a muted, textured background and a soft focal point of muted colors.  Below is the outcome of my efforts (8″ x 10″ flat panel canvas).Mixed Media Grey.Green flower Dream

I altered from my normal course of using Gesso to neutralize the gears and other embellishments and then adding color over the top.  Usually, I do this because of the different colors, tones, and textures of the various pieces that I use.  Instead, for this project, I used all silver toned elements.  I really like how the silver metal is interacting with the muted grey background and the blue/green florals.

I hope you will forgive me for not including a materials list.  I took these photos prior to traveling today and forgot my materials list at home.  So, I do not have a list all of the materials to post for you.  I will try to come back and add the list next week when I am back home.

This is going to be fun weekend for me as we will be celebrating our grand baby’s 1st Birthday.  I am so excited and have been party planning all week-long!

Hope you all have a great weekend too!

Happy Day!
