I painted a cheap A4 canvas sheet with brown acrylic paints, going for a distressed look (surprising what water sprays can do to half dry paint!). Inspired by the water sprays, I added Colour Bloom in Teastain... forgetting my everlasting trouble with that: it just becomes sticky in stead of drying properly. I solved the problem by spreading gold embossing powder over the piece (the next day, it was still so sticky), which gave a lovely random texture to the background. The original canvas was cut in four pieces, so I have a couple more coming... I've stamped some numbers with brown Stazon, adhered a skeleton leaf with satin glaze and sewed on some rusty spacers. Love this, simple and effective!
