Hi you all! The holidays are over, the year is almost over, and I was fighting this week to try to get something done for PPF. I have once again re-used an old canvas - 28x20", which I have painted with metallic paints in green, blue and turquoise. Before painting I put different papers on the canvas, and some gauze, partly to cover up some holes in the canvas, and partly just to see what would happen. The first coat of paint was very watered down, and then I added more layers using a thick brush and my fingers. I used different Adirondack sprays in green, blue and plum, and some gold ink, sprayed water onto the colours and let them run, and then spread them with my fingers. When it had dried I added more spray, and then used the heat gun to 'bubble' it a bit, which gave a nice texture. Then I played with stickles and perfect pearls, adding more layers of colour. I then added various, mostly metallic bits and bobs from my 'bit box', including two old tags. I just like experimenting. I think I would like to do something to the left side, but I don't yet know what. Time will tell. Perhaps....

Hope you all have a good weekend. Take care, and thanks for visiting!
