Finished my hot air balloons!

Last night, after a pretty rough day with chemo fatigue, I suddenly had the urge to do some more to my hot air balloon mixed media piece…..and in the end was well chuffed as I finished it 🙂

I wanted to add some textured baskets so book paper came to mind, with some floated shadows to give them shape.  Finally I added some words to pull the piece together…..

This was a challenging piece as the different mediums I used, reacted with each other and I never knew what was going to happen next!  Great fun, even though some layers, had to be re-done when they lifted…’s always a learning curve…what works and what doesn’t!!

I’m excited now about starting a new piece….maybe pots with flowers as Summertime is approaching….so they say!!

Have a great day everyone.

Love Dawn x


ps.  Just a reminder, I have e-pattern packs available in my Shop which you can download and paint at home…full step by step instructions with detailed techniques, products etc and I am only an email away if you need any help!

Would love to see what you produce
