My "dark side"...on canvas


Room-scene-mixed-media-canvas

So my recent purchase of black gesso meant exploring my "dark side" on canvas too. *winks*


You can't tell but there are actually several layers there....it was one of those projects where I liked what I did, then woke up the next day hating it...It happens a lot...*LOL*


I started with the idea of having all the photos in frames. Then I had an unfortunate incident with nephew #2's photo and was too lazy to do a reprint...so I created a "room scene". With lots of stuff from my "save-it-for-a-rainy-day" stash...including a toy cabinet,a cocktail umbrella and the last scrunchie pig [insert super sad face].

I don't know what rock I've been living under, but I just learned that gesso comes in black this weekend...and here you are rocking it on this adorable canvas! I absolutely LOVE how this came out! That background is SO cool! And I think the unfortunate accident with Nephew #2's photo was serendipitous, cause I love the little room scene you came up with. What fun items you add. Love the camera on the little cabinet. Sorry to see the last of the scrunchie pigs, but I know you have a ton of other fun and whimsical goods to keep surprising us with!
