Mixed Media: Take Me Away

After making the video on how to make the mixed media canvas backgrounds that I do, I had three, count them *three*, of the same canvas. I had made one for myself, then the first video got ruined, and then I had to make the last video. Yeesh! Well, this is the first idea I had to use up the canvases. I like to play with contrasts so this was perfect *and* it used up a lot of the supplies from the last project. I added a lot more to this one, including coloured stickles and sequins, just to add more texture. I hope you like it! This was just as fun to make as the first one. It's 9x12" though, so it's smaller. It still took me 17 hours to make though. These things take a surprisingly large amount of work!

And a special happy thing, my very first, this piece sold for $100!
