Mixed Media Monday - Girls and Dolls


Hi Everyone...
Mixed Media Monday's theme this week is "Girls and Dolls" and I created this canvas using some of my artwork, acrylic paint, and gold leaf...

Trees are my favorite and adding the "Women of Spring" and a cupcake made me think of Spring and these girls are happy to be part of this doll tree...even though the trunk doll is a bit scary and worn out...
Hope you enjoy it!
Pop by all week...I have more of my Glam series coming too...
Cheers,
Diana

Very nice on the prompt of girls and dolls...a very old fashioned doll. My mother had one like that which she kept in a drawer..it used to scare the beejeepers out of me!!

This is wonderful, Diana. The colors and texture are so interesting and of course, your signature cupcake that truly looks good enough to eat off the canvas.
Great work, thanks for sharing,

This is SO cool!
BTW, you should try lino block printing. It's really easy and SUPER fun! I think your drawing style would really lend itself to it!
