I'm not sure where the day has gone, but it has been a relaxing one. We had another little snow storm (after all the previous snow had melted away, teasing us into believing spring was on its way!), so I decided to stay home and inside today. I'm trying to complete the many pieces that I have in various stages of "doneness". I only finished a few small ones, like this ATC-sized stretched canvas from Dick Blick

Gesso and Ink background

This is half of the 12" x 18" background I created inspired by Maggie Grey's book Textile Translations
The base is Timtex, layered with tissue paper and handmade paper, fusible webbing, gesso, inks, and acrylic paint sprays. I haven't added any metallic highlights yet, nor any stitching, as I'm not yet sure what I am going to do with this particular piece. I love the texture though!
