The elevator family selfie mixed media canvas


Family-mixed-media-canvas

So the old folks are pretty sporting when it comes to posing for selfies...*winks* Here's one we took when we had the whole elevator to ourselves...with 33 levels to go...


Yes...yes...still exploring my dark side on my canvases..[sinister music plays in the background]. Love that I could finally use the plastic tiles that spell "family"..they were in my "save-it-for-a-rainy-day" stash for a really really long time..


If you guessed that the piece of black lace serves some cover-up purpose, you would be right!  It was one of those canvas backgrounds I messed up and it had this blob of paint colours right in the centre [overzealous use of paint + water]. I used a flourish foam stamp to soak up the paint while it was still wet and stamped on the rest of the canvas. 


Then I got my glue gun out for some serious embellishing...*winks*
