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

BRILLIANT... love the wacky combination of everything, could spend ages spotting different shapes. Great idea.
