Throwback Thursday

Morning and my first of two posts today is for the Throwback Thursday with Jo hope you can join in.This canvas I made a few years ago and it has been hung on our bedroom wall--now every morning I look at it and think I don't like that!!!It was my first attempt at a canvas and I didn't wait for the colours to dry in between each one so all merged into one beige shade!!!!

I finally got around to changing it and first of all covered everything in black gesso even that was an improvement-

Then I used a couple of Decoart sprays-

Finally added Cosmic Shimmer Gilding wax to edges and some of the embellishments--now I love it but daughter now has her eye on it!!!

Absolutely love this mixed media piece, it is really striking with that great shimmer of a splash of colour. Love the embellishments and the finished result is striking. Michelle x
