Inspired by Jamie Dougherty

mixed media art with fabric background and butterfly painted on top

The activity that Jamie did was quick and easy. She covered her page with material pieces, gessod over it  and painted an eye on top of the gessoed page. I glued down pieces of material as well. (I used a palette knife to do this.

I then painted a layer of gesso on top of the material.

And then drew a butterfly and painted in parts of it. (The top picture is the completed one where I added final touches.
