 This week Simon Says: Make Your Own Background. So at the center it started with a piece of mixed media paper torn from a dilusions journal. Dilusions paints were applied with a sponge, then using the same colors again I applied them through stencils. Using black dilusions paint through word stencils added fun to the already bright background. I then layered it on black, orange, black, pink, and black again lol. I took an 8x10 canvas board and painted it black. Then over it I used a random rectangles stencil and put transparent glass bead gel through it. Then I waited, a painstakingly long time, which ended up being overnight, for it to dry. I then used ultra heavy gel medium to attatch the matted piece onto the canvas board. I took a boring wooden framed and painted it black, removed the glass and placed my canvas board inside. I am very impressed with how it turned out, and can't wait to see the face of the friend who is going to recieve it.
