Do you remember playing with paper dolls as a kid or is that terribly dating me? I would spend hours carefully cutting out clothes, being ever so careful not to cut through those little white tabs that held the clothes to the doll. I wonder if that's where I got my love of cutting paper from? There was no dollar limit or wrong sizes just endless possibilities and an outfit for every occasion.
Creating a mixed media canvas gives me that same feeling of creative freedom. Arranging paper on a surface and then choosing colors for flowers or presents or dolls is still as fun as it used to be.
Here's where the question comes in. I finished this canvas for my class this month and now I am thinking maybe it reads a little too dark.
What do you think? I cut out a new dress in a light background flower print just to try it out.
Dark dress or light one? Number one...or number two?
One more question...
If I were to add some of these to my etsy shop when I reopen it later this month, would you prefer a half inch dimensional canvas to hang or a flat canvas panel that could be popped in a frame?
Tell what you think? I have a favorite but I will leave the decision up to you.
