Vignettes of Mixed Media

Combine your art objects to create a mixed media vignette. I took some vintage bottles and poured acrylic paint in them, swirled the paint around until it covered most of the bottle, let it dry and embellished the front of the bottle with things like bingo cards, old metal hinges, painted papers, fabric scraps and wire.

I then placed the bottles in front of a piece of art. You can add textural items like the paper covered wood dowels or shredded paper. Anything that presence an interest to you will grab the attention of others. Use the labels to convey information - such as the bingo card with the number 24 circled (the date).
