Friday

Let's go explore...


Explore-mixed-media-canvas

I've been enjoying the process of adding colorants and mediums to patterned paper to make it more "me". Given the amount of patterned papers I have, this may be a good thing.*winks*


Yep...explore the possibilities of "adding" or "subtracting" from your existing patterned papers. Print is too busy or loud? Use gesso to tone it down or block parts of it off completely. Need a little more colour? Go ahead....add some paint or ink. 



Here I added some Golden glass bead gel with The Crafter's Workshop then coloured with gelatos for added definition. 

This project was created for LESSology Challenge #44:Tick Tock.


Happy weekend friends! :)

Loving your use of hessian in these little canvases. This has a certain French feel to it to me. Or is just me and I see France everywhere!!!

Very pretty! I always forget about toning down busy patterns with gesso. I should do that more often. Thanks for the reminder!
