Painting by Vicky Christensen, mixed media on 16 X 12 inch canvas panel 
 I'm still experimenting with mixed media, and I'm trying some of the techniques in Acrylic Solutions,  written by Chris Cozen and Julie Prichard. For this painting I used a brayer to apply the first layer of paint. After I brushed on a second layer I let the shapes that emerged inspire me.

The photos below show the various stages and layers.

I used scraps of painted tracing paper that I had stenciled and stamped with leftover paint for the flowers and leaves. This is what it looked like before I glazed the final layer.
