Pug And Boston Mixed Media

"Pug Stare" 5x7 mixed media collage

Maybe I have been reading too many Stampington magazines on journaling & mixed media, or maybe it is just spring ... all I know is this month I have been longing to mix things up with a little mixed media collage work. Yesterday Lola and I created these fun 5x7 mixed media collages by combining her sewing skills and my digital collage work. We both played around with painting iridescent ink on top. The top image is printed on canvas and the bottom artwork is on a high quality epson presentation paper. The text at the bottom of each talks about the breed. We are also working on Doxies and bulldogs. Next week we hope to introduce a few more breeds to the shop.

These are being created in small signed editions of 25 so once they are gone they are gone. I have priced them low at $18.99 and as always they ship with some sort of free goody such as a bookmark.

Very cool art Rebecca. I was just getting ready to launch a collection of bird paintings in a similar manner. I found your site through Auntumn Leaves. We have a lot of favorite musicians in common; Waites. Cohen , Welch..!

These are so great. I really like the looseness in the painting on the "frame"
