More Texture

Hi everybody, hope you are all well and fit. I am sitting here watching the sun rise again; it looks different again today, as it was cold and misty in the night, and it's a great sight to see the sun rising through the mist.
Yesterday I made another trip to the thrift shop, bringing more bits and bobs. I have taken so much there already, and I am wondering why my cupboards are still so full. But at least my book shelves are looking cleaner and less chaotic.

I made the canvas on Sunday. It is 8x8 inches. Once again, I have used several layers of colour, glue and heating to create texture, and then added beads, stars and stickles to heighten the effect. It has a nice glitter and shine, too, which doesn't really show in the pictures.





I have just realised that it is Tuesday today, so will get going on my tag for Tag Tuesday later! Yesterday I was tired from clearing out, so I treated myself to an evening of *Cranford* on DVD, which is always good to watch.

Have a good day you all, take care, and thanks for visiting!
