Vintage and modern mixed media art

I wanted to try my hand at a few new techniques, one was using old magazines and a natural product called Citra Solv something in it breaks down the old ink and creates some unique looks. I love the look but it's very orangy smelling at first. Lol anyway I found this unique vintage postcard that was the perfect size then added a bunch of texture and layers and voila. Vintage meets modern. What do you think. If you like it please share with your friends.

Mixed Media Canvas Art in Progress

This is a mixed media piece I have been working on that I wanted to share. I tend to gravitate to this color palette. I love the look of henna tattoos and this is interpretation.
