My first mixed-media collage for the Melange Challenge "Dance"

This is titled "My favorite dance partners!"

The photo in the middle is me at age 6, in 1947, in one of my tap dance outfits. The dancers around me are pictures I drew of my pets I have loved and enjoyed. All have gone on to the Rainbow Bridge, except the little guy at the bottom. That's Sterling Samson, my little Westie, my only pet right now.

I used acrylics, watercolors, gesso, gel medium, paper elements of watercolor paper and preprinted pieces. I added ribbon and brads, and am not sure if I'm finished. :-)

  3. I love this Midwestie, there are so many happy things to take in! It's delightful to see how you incorporated all you pets, a tribute to those who've crossed the Rainbow Bridge! And love the pawprints!!! Hoooorayy on your brand new blog, have fun with it!
