Serendipity Redux

Serendipity

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….
