mix it up with Melange weekly challenge...fun


This week's prompt was fun and here's what I came up with. The collaged background is all about the stereotypical woman...a school teacher, a beautiful new mom, a great seamstress and cook. I transferred an image "real" women on top of the background and embellished the piece with buttons. The women are having a wonderful time at the beach...and also laughing at the fact that they don't fit the stereotypical female mold. The piece measures 5"x7" was done on a piece of 140 lb. watercolor paper.

Visit the melange blog for the weekly prompt, then create a mixed media piece and link to your piece in the blog comments. Anyone is invited to participate, you don't need to be a melange team member.
