I have never entered my items into Mixed Media Monday's Challenge, but when I discovered that this weeks theme was anything with wings, I knew it was one I had to try. Mixed Media Monday is a group of Mixed Media artists who take turns hosting challenges, and display their work at this site... http://www.mixedmediamonday.wordpress.com/ so please take a trip over there and see what everyone has accomplished.
This weeks theme was flying, and includes anything with wings so I decided my favorite bird would be encorporated into this vintage looking piece. The collage is gathered on a 5 x 5 stretched canvas, which was "rusted" using a real rusting agent. The watchful crow is placed on a vintage map which has been distressed and aged. The words "As the Crow Flies" is laid out in various fonts. A rusted up tag holds the dictionary meaning for the word "flying". I hope this stands up to the talented artists who will also be included in this challenge! Thanks for looking.
