Mixed Media Monday

This weeks challenge theme is: "cool it down" - in other words use cool colors in your creation.
I painted a picture of my 18 month old grandaughter. I am NOT a painter by any means, but I thought I would give it a try... I took the "paint by numbers" approach to painting this. I can't even believe I'm showing this.... cool colors though!!It has 3d elements to it... a textured tissue paper dress, textured paint for the flower stem & leaves and of course the silk flower.
Here is the photo I used for a reference~I also made some tags...
more my style!
