Crazy Amigo - "Insects"



The theme over at Crazy Amigo Challenge this week is "Insects" -- I applied gesso and acrylic paint to a 4/4 canvas and brushed Pearl Ex powders over the surface; the background papers are from K&Co.'s Madeline line, and vintage sheet music. The butterfly is also from K&Co. The rest is pretty obvious--not my best work, but fun to play with, nonetheless.

I am making my way back around to visit my new friends from OWOH! I'm happy to count you among them! Your collage is lovely -- I especially like the branch and the fiber combined with the relief detail at the bottom!

Well you might not think it's your best but I think it's fab! I love the colour and your composition. I've added Pearl Ex to my shopping list... Margaret
