Mixed Media on Canvas
8 x 8
This is how my serendipitous ACEO that turned into a canvas turned out. I like it so much, it won’t be in my Etsy shop! I decided to do gold leaf on the edges. Working with gold leaf is a lesson in patience but I love how it looks. I had to put on some very quiet music–the Zen Garden station on Pandora–and remind myself over and over that I was not in a hurry. Very Zen. Gold leaf has a mind of its own. Here’s how it looked as I was working on it.
I like to let the edges fray a little to give it a distressed look.
It’s happily hanging on my wall now.
Serendipity at its best….
