I like to cut up and rearrange some of my pieces. I find that they take on a completely new meaning and a new look that I like much better than the original.

This piece was trimmed and mounted on cardboard. It's a small piece but it packs a much bigger punch than the original painting.

  1. Nice. May I ask, what type of adhesive you use. I would like to do some mixed media and not sure the best thing to use. Thanks.

    1. Hi Julie. I use Liquitex gel medium. A small jar will last a long time.
