You know what it's like - new techniques, push myself to create something that's different from my normal style - use colours that I normally avoid - outside the box blah, blah! Well, I did try but I had to start again 3 times because I just hated what I'd done, used red, used pink, used ochre..... but finally I got a lovely milky coffee colour with tiny bits of underneath colour coming through. The scan doesn't show the true colour though, sorry!
Then the fun began, choosing what would be the focal point, and trimmings etc. I used bits of a rusted necklace, vintage china doll's leg, old watch, bit of lace, drawer pull, and a lovely image from a collage sheet I've had for ages. This canvas is called Beauty and Decay.
