I've been in the process of making new mixed-media art with inspiration of my recycled textiles tea cups to incorporate them into paintings. Below is a photo of my first one which will be in a series. It is a 10" x 10" canvas.
The mixed-media I used, includes: acrylic paints, adhesive, oil pastel, embroidery string, & threads.
I hope to be able to make enough that it will give a feeling of a story being told by a visual and emotional experience - since this is a way for me to work out my emotions in a visual art style. I can imagine the tea cup is inviting guests to the party that will enrich the moment for everyone.
