This is a mixed media canvas made for the May/June Secret Sister swap. It is 8" x 10" and includes various items left over from previous projects. My main goal for this piece was to showcase layers, depth, and texture. This photo shows it from a front view. I started by adding found objects and embellishments with various adhesives. I also added texture paste and crackle paint and then covered everything with black gesso. Next I used some Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels in various colors (I bought them a long time ago and haven't used them in a very long time). Next I adhered more embellishments, covered them with more black gesso and paints, etc. I continued this process with many layers until I got a composition I liked. I really worked intuitively and enjoyed the process versus the end product. For finishing touches I used Prima Finnabair Art Alchemy Metallique paint and waxes. (I bought them just for this project).
