Courage – A mixed media layout using Transfer It sheets

A Mixed Media project by Monalisa Dutta.

Hello everyone,

Courage - A mixed media layout using Transfer It sheets 1

Today, I am presenting the tutorial of creating this altered canvas. I used ‘Courage’ in project title because the focal element of my project is a quote of Van Gogh i.e. ‘If you hear a voice within you say “you cannot paint’ then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced”. As an artist we sometime hesitate to try out new things or hesitate for a new style. So, I inclined to use the title for this project.
