Serenity


My first real canvas… I have done a couple of tiny ones but this one is 8x8. I used my grandmother’s buttons and little purse. I hated to glue it but then I thought I was preserving it and that it would be where I could enjoy it too. I used the fresco technique from ATC lesson 7 and then my spackle technique too.

Inka, this is brilliant! I love it when there is an element that draws the eye off the canvas. I would hang this in my home.
