Modigliani Monday: Granny's Photo Album

The Gingersnap Creations blog has a challenge titled "Granny's Photo Album," and it inspired me to create this art journal page.  The journaling reads "Every little girl deserves to feel like a princess.  The image is a photo of my mom which I altered using this Modigliani painting as an inspiration:
It was a lot of fun to transform my mom's image and even more fun to create the collage. It's been a while since I messed around in my mixed media bin.  For this page, I used sewing patterns, napkins, flowers, Graphic 45 paper, a vintage dictionary page on which I had stamped/resisted a bee, and some other fun embellies. Lots of shades of acrylic paint, too! Thanks so much for the inspiration. Who knew there was a Modigliani waiting in Grandma's photo album?

Another wonderful piece! Now I know why I don't dabble in mixed media. I have no where to put all those additional supplies!

Looks really great Rinda. Mixed media is a lot of fun, but once we get started with it, it's hard to find what to do with all the pieces of art. I have so many lying around and in fact my studio is crowded. You are doing really great in this adventure of yours. Keep it up. Have a great week.
