Mind Wide Open Challenge







My first ever Mind Wide Open challenge ... I have always admired the work that people put in to participate in the challenges over at Mind Wide Open ( http://www.mind-wideopen.blogspot.com/ ) and this month I decided to join in the fun! it will be great seeing what everyone has created either similar to, or unlike my own project. This mixed media collage was made on an 8x8 stretched canvas, 1 1/2 inches deep. Layers of gesso, paints , a ripped and torn image, stained muslin and a vintage skeleton key, and wire encorporated with quotes about JOURNEY complete this collage.
