Another wall piece! I'm still scared to do these for some reason. But am working my way through that fear :)

Anyways, the center quote is from Howard Finster - it's part of an exhibit at the Atlanta High Museum of Art, and even though most of his work is a little too religious for me, this quote obviously really spoke to me.

I took a 5"x7" piece of thick chipboard for the base. Spray painted most of the elements blue and used Golden Thick Molding Gel Medium mixed with blue acrylic paint as the adhesive. The bits and pieces are things i've collected over the years or are directly from Gauche Alchemy Mixed Media Kits.

    Wow, what an impressive mixed media piece! Thanks for commenting on my journal page. You asked what I asked to create the blue rectangle, well I sponged it with Broken China Distress Ink.

    Lara, this piece is so amazing to me!! I never got the whole "mixed media" thing until I saw this and your card for Bono. You give me the courage to try this myself!! Thanks so much. Bono is correct - you ARE an artist.
