Little Luck Bringer

Remember that I took the M3 course on willowing.ning? Well I never did finish the final assignment. I don't know why, but I just didn't, so when it came time to create a piece to donate to the art centers annual Art Fest Auction I knew it would be something fun and different to donate. Our theme for the Art Fest this year is "celebrating culture through art" so I figured I'd put a little Irish spin on it to celebrate my part of my heritage.

It is a mixed media wall hanging. The little fairy and flowers are painted on a piece of unstretched canvas with water soluble crayons, water soluble graphite, acrylics, and collaged book pages. The wall hanging is coffee stained muslin with quilted on flowers made from book pages. I used a bit of water soluble crayon to tint them and the stems and leaves as well. I wrote a little Irish blessing on in ink.

"May the blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow and may trouble avoid you wherever you go."
It goes on auction tomorrow!

It is adorable! I love mixed media, and you incorporated so many lovely textures. I especially love the quilted flowers. Good luck at the auction! I am sure you will rock it as usual.
