The reworked canvas...

"Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new."                                                                                                                    Albert Einstein

I wish art was visualizing a design in your mind's eye and then just executing it to perfection... the first time round. Now, wouldn't that be awesome? *winks*


I have to confess: my canvas was reworked on 3 times. And I mean, reworked from start to finish. 3 times!!!


Before this layer of Liquitex ceramic stucco was applied with The Crafter's Workshop stencil, there was another layer of Liquitex resin sand applied with another The Crafter's Workshop stencil. That idea didn't quite pan out so I went over it with two coats of gesso, then a layer of blue paint.


So, don't be discouraged if you make mistakes on your projects. Tweak the initial idea a little and try again. 


This mixed media canvas was created for LESSology Challenge #41: Beautiful scenery. Come play along!:)

So true.I don't think I have ever been able to finish a canvas in one go.I always mess up and rework and I like that because it adds so much dimension to the project.Happy mistakes.Your canvas is lovely.Nice bold colours and that bird is so unique.
