Mixed Media Canvas Wall Art - My Maternal Grandma

I took a black and white photo and added some green and brown tones to create this mixed media canvas wall hanging of my grandma.

First, I added gesso to the 8 x 10 canvas, then added a sheet of cardstock so I could transfer the design to the background.

The scraps of paper are from various paper collections.  I ripped up some pieces and inked the edges (one of my favorite things to do).  The flower are single petals glued down using Glossy Accents.  The initial is chipboard that I painted and embossed.

The quote:  "The Eyes are the window to the soul" is a chipboard sticker (K & Company Studio 112).
