This piece is part of my self-challenge this year to Make Art Daily.  Part of that is learning new mixed media techniques such as the faux cloisonne piece using chipboard, UTEE, a heat gun, mica powders, Versamark and a rubber stamp with gold pigment ink.  I also made molds of my vintage picture buttons using Amazing Mold Putty and polymer clay painting them with black gesso and metallic gold paint and sealing them with gloss acrylic sealer.  The photo of Alphonse Mucha's Autumn was printed using Printed Treasures and enhanced with acrylic and metallic paint and Pigma Pens.  Other materials include cotton fabric, batting, organza, woven plaid, metal leaf charm, glass beads, cheesecloth and hand and machine sewing and machine quilting.  It is self-bound and measures 10" x 12 3/4".  Small pieces like this allow me to incorporate new techniques, use scraps and accomplish a piece in a smaller amount of time than when making a large quilt or thread painting.

I love the composition, colors, use of materials/embellishments.  This is a wonderful little treasure.
