Creative Artiste *November Mixed Media Challenge* #66 ~ Anything Mixed Media Goes

 Hello Creative Friends, 

It's November Challenge time @ Creative Artiste 
where it's always *Anything Mixed Media Goes*

Determined to create something using past left overs and with 
Remembrance day in the forefront of my mind. I came across a 
calico panel obviously an idea started but pushed to one side. 
Along with three Darkroom door Poppies they made perfect 
companion for my November mixed media make... 

Lets get started!!

Glued to a 4 x 7 canvas I extended the scene using 
jute, burlap and loose fibres along with lace offcuts 
and organza strips. Defining the details with the help 
of pencils, paints and inks. 

Layering all three Poppies together, attaching to a 
twisted wire stem, calico leaves cut and painted 
from cotton remnants help design one single Poppy.

The teased jute ribbon highlighted with white gesso 
reminds me of rural fencing against the landscape.

I loved making this significant and personal piece 
with family & friends firmly in my mind.. 

Stay strong everyone *Hope Shines Through*

I look forward to seeing your Mixed Media Makes. 

Take care everyone
