CBA - Texture Challenge


Chunky Book is hosting fortnightly challenges, the first is 'Texture". I started with a blank 4" square blank canvas. For the texture I used Impasto Medium through Gyprock tape for the left hand top corner, down the right hand side I used crumpled tissue paper, and also a cuttlebug border die cut, in the middle I placed a skeleton leaf. I let this dry, then coated it with 2 layers of black gesso. For the colour, I used Pefect Pearls in Pewter, Blue Patina & Green Patina. Also Adirondack Acrylics in Cranberry & Denim & Adirondack Metallics Dabber in Pearl. I embellished it with a die cut key and German scraps. I am happy with the result and can't wait for the next challenge.
