collage


Saturday workout has the challenge to make a collage.

My trouble is that i don't know when to stop and stop altering what I've done.
I have not got a clue how to get the piccie sharper and don't have the patience to wait till daylight but you'll get the drift. The canvas was painted with Gesso which I mixed with acrylic paint. Once dry I smeared a dabber over it then wiped that with a babywipe.A torn page from a telephonebook again with gesso , some jute , a brand new leaf diecut and some more bits and pieces from my stash oh and the crochet doily is from a jumblesale shame they only had 10.
the girls are from Lisasalteredart ,the bingocard from Tentwostudio

Ik heb het eerst met gesso ingesmeerd wat ik vermengd had met acryl kleurtje daarna met een dabber met donkerder bruin eroverheen en geijk weer afgeveegd met een billendoekje. Een gescheurde bladzij uit een telefoonboek.. weer met gesso ingesmeerd , wat jute een gloednieuw stansje van blaadjes en nog wat dingetjes . de meiden zijn van Lisasalteredart en de bingo van Tentwostudios
het gehaakte ding komt van een jumblesale jammer dat er maar 10 waren.
