Canvas fun - Anything Goes Week with Dawn

Hi Everyone,

firstly I would like to apologise for the poor pics! My camera is just not up to capturing fine details and I'm hoping to get a new one sorted soon.

Lots of painty, messy fun with this one.............

I started by gluing on the fab mixed swirls to create the side borders. The whole canvas was then covered with tissue paper using pva. This was left to dry overnight before I added a coat of bright orange acrylic. I then stippled on a coat of dark purple acrylic allowing some of the orange to peep through. Using a brayer I added some highlights to the swirls using silver acrylic.
Using stamps from my stash and a sheet of card coloured with neo-colour crayons I made the focal point and quote to finish.

Here is what I used...
