I really need to remember to take more photos of my process- sorry:

This first one is when I am already almost done with the canvas. I started with a stenciled base using heavy modeling paste. One of those big stencils you get at Michaels.

I then painted it with some Josonjas acrylic -rose madder and a teal color (can’t remember what brand)- I did a lot of pastels in greens, pinks and yellows and then sprayed some workable fixative over it before my next step.

Following all that, I attached some crocheted lace pieces with some mod-podge-which I painted over with acrylic inks and rubbed over it with dark glitters. I also affixed some green cord with more modeling paste and covered that with glitter as well. I also rubbed the areas around the lace with some dark colored pastels followed by more workable fixative. Some various ink drips here and there and voila!

This piece just seems very dark and brooding- I prolly was fighting with my ex at that point. I wish you could feel it, it is so full of texture!

Thanks for playing folks!
