Once Upon a Time - mixed-media collage

Honestly, THIS is what I love to create the most.
For me it is the best creative retreat and challenge in one. Perfect moment of creativity.

"Once Upon a Time" (20x20 cm - 8x8'')

Once Upon a Time - collage

And some close-ups:


As always - it is a mixture of everything: Prima paper flowers and embellishments (including my Mechanicals and Ingvild's Junkyard Findings), trinkets, fake jewelry, electronic and electrical elements, can openers, pebbles, trinkets, computer parts, found objects such as light bulbs, gears and other clock elements.
Colours: Luminarte Primary Elements Pigments and Silks Acrylic Glaze.
Most of the products are possible to buy in Mixed-Media Place - my favorite media online store!

Thank you again for stopping by - I hope you enjoyed the project:) Now off to preparing for USA and Canada Tour and making CHA samples...
Have a great creative day!

Totally brilliant. I love the cogs and the light bulb - such fun references to phrases about thinking and ideas. The texture in the background is astonishing.
