Mixed media dog

I thought I'd try something new, using all my art supplies. I started with a 5 x 7 piece of pastel paper. I layered the following items...words rubber stamp using watermark ink, flowers, and then I drew an outline of what was suppose to be a French bull dog. Then I tried my gouache to add color to the dog and flowers. I forgot how opaque gouache can be and really didn't like how flat the color looked, so I went back in with my neocolor crayons dry, then using a wet paint brush to exploded the color. I continued to fine tune the piece until I did all that I could do. Didn't want to spend a lot of time working on this piece. Total time to create about 1 hour.
