Mixed Media on Broken Board

Hello all,

We have had some warmer weather here and I can say that I am really enjoying it!  Today I got out and visited my favorite vintage and reuse shops to find some new treasures for my stash.  I had a wonderful time and found some terrific pieces!

The Mixed Media piece below is a creation of recycled and reuse items.  A broken board, junk jewelry, recycled netting and some re-purposed chicken wire all came together to enhance the focal point of a art panel done in acrylic.  Such fun!
