Recently I created a mixed media canvas inspired by Gauche Alchemy's guest designer for November, Frieda Oxenham. Frieda loves nature and I've been hanging onto a vintage book page with birds on it for ages. It felt good to finally get a chance to use it.

I started with a canvas I found at my favorite thrift store and covered it with Gesso and book pages. I then attached Gauche Alchemy's Dark and Light Woodgrain Punchinella onto the background in alternating strips. You'll notice that the piece of rope around the border is frayed. As much as I would love to tell you that I did that on purpose because I'm a deep thinking creator, I have to admit that Toot got a hold of it and decided to play "cowboy". Ah well, it adds a nice touch. :P
ACME Kit which I mounted on White Ouchless Cardboard and I added pieces from the Blue Streak and It's All Gravy, Baby! Mixed Media Color Kits.
