Changing It Up!

Hi friends, happy Saturday! Hope you're all well & having a lovely weekend!
Well, my play with the Brushos yesterday was a bit of a disaster if I'm honest......let's just say I need lots more practise lol.......although it has left me with some lovely coloured fingernails!
It got me to thinking often I go back to using techniques & colours I'm comfortable I decided to change it up a bit & go with colours that while I may use them separately I'd really go out of my comfort zone & use them all together!
I started with a 6x4 canvas primed with Gesso then built up the layers using acrylic paint, distress paint & a tester pot from Wilkos lol! I added interest with a stencil, a lid & an old credit card. The sentiment is my own......wish I'd stuck it on straight now but not to worry.......then lastly I added 3 flowers to pretty it up a bit........another make for Miss Rebecca's wall of canvas!
Thanks for popping by.......I'm off back to my desk.......see you soon!

Don't forget, I have CANDY if you fancy entering!
