hooray for friday - it means hubby is coming home for a couple days! and boy could i use that! i do not like when he is out of town anyway and for health reasons this has been a rough week on my own!
yesterday i had a little crafty get together with my buddy suzanne - we have been friends for over 5 years now and she is one of my FEW crafty friends around here. not only that but we get along well with each other and have lots of fun whenever we are together. she has been wanting me to show her how to do more mixed media stuff so we decided we would get together now that the kids are back in school. we will probably spend most of our get together working our art journals but this time she wanted to do a fall canvas so i told her NO PROBLEM! i have 3 very large pieces in progress at the moment but we did small 8" x 8" canvases for this project.
suzanne's on her blog today too! it's funny we did basically the same thing with basically the same supplies but they turned out completely different! we began with yellow orange canvases which we covered with torn fall papers and old music sheets. Then we sponged on acrylic paint and Luminarte Silks for some subtle shimmer.
then we mixed some Luminarte Primary Elements into ceramic stucco medium and put it on in a few spots using a stencil.
