A couple of weeks ago I decided I needed to get out of my "not creating art" rut and came up with some painted chunky canvasses that will be a housewarming gift for Kyle and Jenny over in Lockport. They wanted some textured abstracts in green for the dining area, so I've begun with 4"x 4" x 1" pieces. Here's one of the three. I used Golden acrylics, molding paste, bubblewrap, and some stencils and stamps.
Then I grabbed a few 5" x 5" canvasses I found on sale for $1 a piece, and designed some mixed media pieces inspired by the phrases "leap fearlessly", "follow your bliss", and "surrounded by love". They have painted and stamped backgrounds with with wired floral ribbon and sewn fabric paper embellishments.
