New original mixed media canvas

This original mixed media canvas was inspired by symbols of a past love. 

I've included some objects that people commonly save as keepsakes - (e.g. scraps of a hand-written letter, a stamp from the envelope) and some things to suggest the passage of time (a bit of skeleton leaf, the old paper of the envelopes). 

You can read more about the symbolism I've used here

Medium : Acrylic paints and collage elements (including mini envelopes, a stamp, piece of skeleton leaf, a button and some lace!) on canvas

Size : 6” X 4" X 1.5" approx (15 x 10 x 3.75 cm approx.)

This canvas is for sale in my etsy shop -
