the one about some new art

(click to enlarge)

Started with corrugated cardboard (recycled) and layered paper, gesso, fabric, watercolor crayons, and paint. Added texture by swirling some thick gel medium over the whole thing with a cheapie coarse-bristled brush and letting it dry. Cherubs are toner transfers. Light pink tulle was tied on with ribbons at the very end.
