I created a grungy mixed media piece that has (I think) a real urban vibe to it. The one thing I learned from doing mixed media art, is that it truly goes through an ugly stage. Just keep building the textures and layers first. I have taken pictures during the process to show you what was involved.
I started gluing flowers and different textured pieces to the base, the LOVE is just there for placement. it is not stuck down yet.
It's back to "not so pretty" again.
Now we have a nice coherant monochromatic piece
after that was done, I felt it needed a hit of gold to highlight some areas
