I started with an 8x8 piece of Basswood Canvas and collaged it with decorative paper. Then I stenciled, stamped, inked, painted and used fluid acrylic paint and some more ink added then the lace trim. Over the lace trim I painted with very watery fluid acrylics but that doesn't show up in the photo. I used magenta , paynes gray and red iron oxide. I painted the little wood pieces and aged them. again used magenta, paynes gray and red iron oxide.Shame that's not showing up as it looks really cool! I used Glass Bead Gel in random areas. This goes on white but dries clear with little shiny beads.I'm sure I'm leaving some steps out but dats dat!! My Mixed Media Canvas. It looks so much better in person. Oh yeah added the little pearls! LOL

Good on you for going beyond the norm.

Love the colors and design.
