Every now and then I get in the mood to make a mess! By the end of this mixed media canvas I had dried glue stuck to my desk, wads of masking tape on the floor, green fingers and a scattering of tiny flowers over just about everything. Despite the mess, I quite enjoy the process of creating these canvases. You don't have to worry too much about being precise, a slip, slop, slap approach is perfectly acceptable... although I can't guarantee the outcome!
GATHER ALL THE BITS AND PIECES
PREPARE THE CANVAS WITH LOTS OF TEXTURE
ADD MORE TEXTURE WITH CHIPBOARD, FLOWERS, METAL, ETC.
WHEN THE GLUE IS DRY, COVER EVERYTHING WITH A COAT OF GESSO
GO CRAZY WITH SPRITZES, SPRAYS AND PAINTS - MY FAVOURITE PART
BRING IT ALL TOGETHER AGAIN WITH A TOP COAT OF GESSO
ADD SOME SPOTS OF LIQUID PEARLS, A TOUCH OF GOLD PAINT, ETC.
