Have you ever tried anything like mosaic art? I made table top one time using my grandmothers old dishes. You know I work with oils on canvas and I also work with mixed media. I've had this canvas of the "Creation", sitting in my studio for about a year now. Every time I tried to work on it I just didn't have a good feeling about it. One day, I was working on a journal page and it hit me, turn it into a mosaic piece.
I pulled out a few of my old art magazines, tore out pages of artwork and started cutting them into small pieces. I am using a medium matte gel by Liquitex to adhere the pieces to the canvas. After it's finished I will use a sealer over it, I just haven't decided what type yet. I've got to cut some pieces to get the shading of the arms and hands and then add darker shades on the bottom. I think I'll put them in some snack bags to keep it all organized. Stay tuned for future posts.
