Consumed by Canvas

Time to show off another canvas!  I am absolutely in love with mixed media canvas art, and manage to spend time on projects about once a week.  I have to wait until inspiration strikes, though.  The last canvas I created just didn't have that spark that drove me.  I had just wanted to create something.
Well, I sparked today, and I love what I created!  The background is a mix of paint, patterned tissue paper and ink.  The focus is a black & white photo of a woman in two halves.  The top half is kind of a glamorous 50's look, while the bottom is an Angelina Jolie-kickin'-ass kind of look. Embellishments include metal charms, paper doilies, ribbon roses, stamped ink, lace and paper, and a feather (fast becoming my signature embellishment).
All women have both glamour as well as toughness inside them.  The secret is to find your own balance, the one that makes you happy.  I'm still searching for mine, but the journey is part of the fun!  Enjoy your journey, and happy crafting!
