Adding Texture

I'm new to all this mixed media malarky and have an awful lot to learn but I thought for this weeks Polkadoodles make, I'd give it another go.

I bought myself an A4 canvas board from the £1shop and away I went. I'm not sure if you're supposed to plan these things or go with the flow? I ended up just looking round the house for things to add lol. The main thing was I had fun and I will definitely be doing it again.


The main focal point were the diasies which I coloured with my pencils on paper cut out and set to one side. I covered the board with iridescent gesso then added my acrylic paints, once that was dry I added more of the gesso thru a polkadot stencil (difficult to pic up in the picture I think) I used some background stamps, gemstones & die cuts to add lots of texture then stamped out my daisies on the board so I could see where to place them. I then adhered my coloured daisies on to my canvas,

In hindsight I think I should have gone for a smaller board as it was rather a large area to cover but thats how we grow isn't it?

Thanks so much for stopping by, please feel free to leave me a comment.
