Mixed Media on a Twig, Free As A Bird ~ SOLD





This piece of collaged mixed-media on a twig represents the joy of being free to do one's art, and that is why I named it Free As A Bird.

Three pieces of vintage linen are collaged and connected with laces, ribbons, papers and other fun embellishments. A vintage porcelain china doll known as a frozen Charlotte is nestled amidst antique lace with her little head against a bird feather. Vintage buttons and sealing wax adorn parts. Also, I have utilized a bit of encaustic using white oil paint to brighten the wax.

The entire piece from the twig to the bottom piece of lace is 18 inches long.

A shard that I framed in silver solder came from an antique dish. I have Mod-Podged real tiny roses to prevent them from ever crumbling.

The pocket has little treasures. All-in-all, I thoroughly enjoyed decorating this fun item.

Thank you for visiting!
