Call me old-fashioned…

…but there’s something about a Mom that cozies up a home. This piece of mixed media art plays off the current week’s prompt (old- fashioned) over at Illustration Friday.

Along with using vintage trim, lace and buttons, I copied my Mom’s recipes onto transparency film. Then I adhered the film to the canvas with a thin coat of matte medium. I added paint and inks to further incorporate the recipes into the piece. One of my very favorite ingredients to instantly age any piece is Jim Holtz Distress Ink in vintage photo. And speaking of old-fashioned life, our dishwasher is finally all better and thus my appreciation for modern conveniences even greater. I can cook and bake once again.

  2. I love this! The buttons are a lovely touch, really sweet. I love the layers of text and paint too. :o)

  3. You know, I need to pay closer attention sometimes…I totally missed your posting that your blog had moved…until now. I’m glad I “found” you as I’ve always enjoyed your postings!
