Mixed Media Monay’s August 10 challenge is Blue and Green. Since these are two of my favorite colors, the challenge was a lot of fun. I’ve developed an interest in small collages of late (thanks to the book Mixed Mania, which recommends completing a small collage or other piece of art every day. Uncertain what I could do with these tiny collages, I have decided to begin creating small brooches, or pins with the pieces.

This brooch, my second,  uses text from an old atlas, with clip art cut from a 50s era New Orleans hotel tour book. I have some Metallic Olive Lumiere paint, and used it to add a little swirl and to edge the piece. I’m quite pleased with the outcome.

Blue and green are always in fashion
