I was in Michael's one day and noticed they sell pre-gesso'd board canvases in several sizes. I looked at these for a long time, closely inspecting the surface and the various sizes. I have NO idea what was going thru my head during this process, but I bought a 3-pack of the 5 x 7 size. Three months ago it would never have dawned on me to work on canvas.
Today I made this piece for the gentleman who made the beautiful work counter in the salon. I wanted to thank him and at the same time show him how great this workspace is for me.
"Merci Beucoup (sp?) from me to you" uses background paper from 7 gypsies, painted over with acrylic paint. The quote is also from 7 gypsies, a set of awesome stickers about life. Chipboard buttons are from making memories; rub on letter from Basic Grey, onto Heidi Swapp burgundy chipboard circle. The Eiffel Tower metal pieces are from ??, didn't write it down :(. Fibers are from Adornments.
