Mixed media demo: acrylic, handmade paper & gold leaf paintings

My annual 100 painting project gives me a good excuse to try something new and break out of the box a little bit and having the kiddos home from school for two days for Sandy was a good excuse for having them join in on the fun.

Your latest bouquet of paintings are like a big dose of floral sunshine!

I'm glad you all survived Sandy and had fun while tucked safely at home.

It's always a delight to see your process - thanks for sharing Kristina!
