Tranquility

Using an inspirational word is the Mixed Media Monday challenge this week

Working a little larger than I usually do, I randomly glued torn bits of all sorts of papers onto a 9 x 12 inch canvas, adding paint, stamping ink and gesso

  12. Beautiful dreamy piece. I have missed visiting your blog. I got a new job in August & the first 6 months was lots of training. I studied at home & gave up my crafting a bit to get it done. Now I have earned myself a larger salary & I can craft again!! I am working on textured backgrounds which aren’t ready to share for a few more days!!!
