Was looking over at Joyfullploys’ blog and got inspired by the faces…decided to try one of my own.

Mixed Media Monday-Leftovers

The theme from Mixed Media Monday is leftovers.  How perfect–I’d spent my weekend cleaning and organizing my art supplies and area often agonizing over the little bits and pieces from old work and yet very likely to be useful…one day.  I tried to be brutal and just clean, but a few things slipped through and here came that one day!

The background is entirely of leftovers…paint on a palette, ends of 2 rolls of tape, scrap paper, etc.  I then painted the face and used markers to add detail and journal about the use of leftovers into the new year. Great challenge, great fun.
