Playing with my head(s) again....

I wanted to do some painting yesterday, and discovered that all three blocks of paper were used up - but after rummaging in the bottomless pit AKA my hall closet, I found a large block with canvas sheets, which I suppose I might have been saving for something -  if only I could remember what! Anyway, I cut one of the very large sheets in half and got out my head ( I mean the template) and water colours and some inks, and just played. And I do like the results, I love layering the colours one over the other, and this combination.


The canvas has a rough texture, so I applied the paint thinly in some parts so that it shows through.


And it's always fun to flip on some splodges of gold ink....


I am linking up to Simon Says Stamp and show, where the theme  this week is favourite techniques, and Frilly and Funkie, who want to see canvas.

Here's hoping you all have a great day. Take care, and thanks for coming by!
