I added a chipboard bird to bring home the message, along with some musical notes, jewels, trim and a feather.
I am still finding my way through this world of mixed media. The first time I photographed my canvas for my blog, I noticed a decided lack of color and that the phrase "Sing Your Own Song" was lost on the canvas.
So, I took my "finished" piece of art and tweaked it, giving it a little more color and pulling the letters out toward the eye. There was no red in my first attempt, and I think that color helps my piece. I still think the letters are too big for this work, but I can't alter that--they are stuck on there for good and all!
But I say, live and learn. Art is a process, just like life, and you take from it what you can, and you give to it what you are able, and in the end there is a balance of sorts. Hope your day, as well as your art, brings balance to you, too! Happy crafting!
