Mixed Media Monday - Something old

Age... - the scanned version

I took a picture of it and the gold shows up better but the colours are not right :)
Here's my mixed media collage. I painted, stamped, inked, glued and doodled to make this, the dark looking pieces on her dress, wings and hair are gold paper and doesn't look as dark as they scanned. The quote 'Everyones is the age of their Heart' is a old Guatemalen proverb, and my something old for the challenge :) Thanks for the fun theme, and I wish Diane at Mixed Media Monday a very happy birthdag :)

  8. What a great idea to use the proverb as your something old! I love this piece (and it's so interesting to see the scanned and picture version!). I agree with the others, the colors are brilliant, Kristin xo
