Tomorrow I will be participating in the Marie Antoinette Soiree given by Cupid’s Charm . This little event celebrates her birthday which is November 2nd. In her honor, participants are supposed to post some art or photos of things which remind us of Marie. I originally did a quick drawing of Marie, which I was quite happy with, but my intention was to use the drawing to create a mixed media canvas that combined paint, words and collage papers.
So, here goes….my drawing and my finished composition. By the way, this is my first mixed media attempt and I think I might be doing more! It’s quite addictive! You can click on each picture to enlarge it to see the detail.
A little about the painting, I used a leaf stamp to create a feather in her hair. I also subtly put the raven on the top of her head to represent death. The quote is by Marie herself.
Let them eat cake!
