5cm squares - Mixed Media

Today I decided to create something for my walls using some treasured items that were stashed away in a drawer in my art room -

I began painting all the squares with pistacio and cream paint, then I embellished them with little collages and decorative elements.

The squares were all joined together (tricky) and then mounted onto pistacio coloured card and that was then mounted onto a bronze shimmer. It is going to be framed into a 12x12inch box frame.

Here's the result. I have posted some pics of the individual squares on my flickr page too.
