This is very much a transition piece for me. I have only just begun experimenting with mixed media and I am completely in love. This little self-portrait includes stars, dragonflies and butterflies which always play a role in my artwork as well as little pieces of the French language which I hold near and dear (my husband is a French teacher). The color purple is simply my favorite and the aged look represents how I have always felt like an old soul.
I have used colored pencils, paper, copper, Distress Ink, acrylic, cardboard, tape, rubber stamp and mod podge.
