Sadness - collage

“Nothing thicker than a knife's blade separates happiness from melancholy.”
(Virginia Woolf, Orlando)

"Sadness" - mixed-media collage on canvas (20x50cm/8x20'')





Here are some of the products which were used to create the project above:


This project was also made using new Color Bloom Sprays from Prima Marketing - did you see them? I used combination of Precious Stone, Iris, Cobalt, Summer Sky and  Soft Teal. Unfortunatley they will be shipping in April, so we still need to wait a bit for them!


But there is good news:
If you will visit Prima Blog you will find some of my tips and tricks for working with Color Bloom Sprays as well as a chance to win in Prima Color Bloom March Madness. Random winners are picked everyday! Try your luck!



And one more thing - do you now?
On our Mixed Media Place Blog there is a challenge  - inspired by emotions: How would you express sadness? For a reason I can't take part in it, but you can!
It is open to all styles and kinds of projects, so - imagination is the limit! You will find wonderful inspirations from our DT and all the details here:


I'd love to hear what you think about this project - and I hope you will find a moment o join the fun on both blogs:) Good luck!
Sending warmest hugs
