Junk Canvas

Anna from Craft box set us a challenge to make a blended canvas from bits of junk. 
I had a box full of pieces that got water damaged when my craft storage area got flooded from the water tank that lives above it, so this was an ideal opportunity to use some of that stuff. Plus ring pulls, ripped up cardboard box, a broken paintbrush, old inky cotton buds, bottle tops, netting, plastic insects, bobbins,sliced up empty kitchen roll, broken pieces of laser cut pieces, cocktail sticks, finds from walks including a glass heart and marble! And so much more.
Once all of this was glued into place, I covered it with white gesso then started spraying with 
DecoArts Media Misters "yellow green" and "turquoise", these misters work like a dream and give really good coverage. 
Thank for looking x

My Mum

I've just realised that I haven't updated my blog in a long, long time.  It's not for a lack of not wanting to but due to caring for my poor mother who sadly passed away on the 10th May and also having to work full time too. 
I'll be adding more photos over the next few days. 
But firstly one photo of my beautiful mother, rest in peace.
Miss you so very much. xxx
