"Found" Mixed Media Collage on Canvas


I have to say-this piece really did not turn out at allllllllllllllll the way I expected! I am so hyped I even scanned it before the objects on the bottom dried completely (so pardon the white adhesive stuff!). Anyway-I started this out , challenging myself to use different colors than I normally work with-I don't work with red much (at least on canvas that is). I also challenged myself to use some print papers and embellishments. I have not used embellishments on a canvas in at least a couple years. Normally I just don't like the bulk. But, it fit with this and it really finished it off nicely. This canvas has layers and layers of paint..............I was about to throw this one out until I started working on what became the final piece. This is 9x12 in size.

It includes: Collage (obviously), Acrylics, image transfer, metal objects, gold leafing, and graphite
