Three Muses - a set of mixed media assemblages

It's Friday and a video time! This time I have some mixed media for you in canvas form. They resemble coins in my mind, like those collectible, special ones in honor of some achievement. 

Like I say in the video, I started the set with some MDF circles that had a matching color palette. My idea at that time was to show some of the background in the finished pieces, but along the way I chaged my mind. I often if not every time let the project lead me. Some times I have an idea in my head or some guidelines, but I'm open to change the route if that should happen. It's about the journey, not solely the end result. 

My idea the whole time was to add some flowers to these pieces, but as you could see from the video, they come in quite late. That's because the paper flowers sometimes loose their shape when they are soaked in mediums. I mean, that's no shock as wet paper doesn't hold its shape, but still. I chose flowers that already were ok for the color scheme, but still treated them with the paints to blend them more in to the project, make them a part of it. 

Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you a lovely Friday and start to the weekend! May it be a crafty one! Oh, and hopefully you can join the FB live tomorrow evening (Finnish time).
