Mixed Media Mayhem - Textures of San Miquel

The streets of Mexico's colonial cities present a rich source for art inspiration.  There are the jewellike colors, the rustic textures, the frivolity of flowers and foliage, the pungent odors ranging from sweet to spice.  I made this page to capture my awestruck feeling as I walked the streets of San Miguel.
I used Gelatoes, gell medium, and spackle with wallboard repair tape to lay down the initial texture.  Found materials including lottery cards and old newspapers gave me more source material.  My spread just gives a snapshot of the beautify to be enjoyed in San Miguel
