Mixed media collage

I wanted to make something personal for my mother in law but, wasn't sure what she would want. Her home is very color coordinated and the dominant color is teal or turquoise. I came up with this design. Decorative paper on the canvas layed with acrylic felt. Some of the felt has been embroidered with blanket stitch and french knots to hold teal and cream paper flowers in place. A pearl teal acrylic has been painted to edge the bottom decorative paper. One small circle is handmade teal paper. In random flowers there is a teal glitter glue to add a sparkle to the center of the flowers.

I have already run it by her and she appears to love it, so it will be wrapped up as an original design for Christmas!
