Recycled flowers

Painting by Vicky Christensen, mixed media on 20 x 16 inch canvas
I decided to recycle an old boring painting and this is the result. The underlying layers are collaged painted deli wrap, heavy body and fluid acrylics applied with a palette knife and some stenciled areas. I like the texture left by the deli paper and heavy body paint. I used a silicone wedge to scrape back some of the upper layer of paint to let the underlying colors and texture show through. The detail work was done with high flow acrylics and a dipping pen.


  1. Don't know about the "before," but I love the "after!" You take creativity to a whole new level. I just picked up some deli paper & now I feel inspired to use it!


Tell me what you think
