Abstract mixed media canvas


So you know that I've been on a major "Use up your stash or get rid of it" quest...and yesterday, I tackled the paint and ink stash. Since I'm not one to "waste" stuff, I tried to use up every little bit by throwing it all on this 8x8 canvas. *LOL*

I started by adhering remnant lace and ribbon to the canvas using matte medium. Then I covered it with a layer of gesso to prep the surface for colorants. Next I went in with some spray mists for a light wash on the base.

After that, I just went a little crazy with paints, inks and gesso...I love how the textured surface picks up those colorants.

Well, it turned out abstract, colourful and know, the way I like it. *winks*

Playing along with Creative Artiste Challenge #41.

Happy week ahead friends!:)
