Mixed media~

Here is a mixed media piece under the theme of "romance & love"I used part of a class photo from the early 1900's. I used a xeroxed copy which I then put some paint onto the dresses & the girls cheeks. Look at all the sour puss faces on the girls.... except for the one girl next to the only boy. It just cracks me up! I glued the pieces onto a small dollar store chalk-board.... and since I like things "shiney" (I have no idea why) I sprayed it with a gloss spray. Well, that made the chalk marks disappear *sigh* so I got some white paint and one of my "forgot to wash it off paint brushes" and painted on the look of chalk . I sanded the surface slightly so it looks like its been slid in and out from under stacks of books for years. (The jute pictured at the top of the chalk-board is for hanging the piece) I think it turned out kinda cute~
