Butterfly Kisses

"Butterfly Kisses" - 8x8 - Mixed Media Collage
Not For Sale
Over the weekend I experimented with a different technique and I really like the way it turned out. I discovered that an even more textural look could be achieved by layering oil pastels over textured paper; in this case, ogura lace. (My fave!)

And I've become so smitten with this little girl that for the time being she'snot for sale. Pygmalion syndrome, I know, but what are you going to do?

Love seeing experimental uses with materials - and pastels no less! Way to go Kristeena + wonderful effect.

Thanks, Susan. I gave up soft pastels years ago for health reasons, but I love what you can do with really good oil pastels.
