This is my first mixed media canvas collage. The knight is actually a door knocker that was my father's that has been sitting in a drawer for years. I decided that I would base everything around it.
I used acrylic paints from the dollar store, and gesso for the base, and then mod podged pieces of Enchante dsp to that base. I put pieces of lace over the base. The piece of tatting was from a box of bits and pieces that I inherited from my mother in law when she passed away. I don't know if she tatted it or if someone else did but I was glad that I could incorporate it here.
The other bits and pieces are from my stash, the green cameo is a piece of costume jewelry that I used to wear in high school.
I love how it turned out and I am glad that these things are out of the drawers and out where I can see them. :)

Melissa, this is amazing! The base coat is a beautiful collage background for all these wonderful treasures. I love that knight door knocker....an awesome piece. I could look at this for a long time and keep discovering new elements! This is a fabulous mixed media piece.
