GUI Day 3 2017

Growing in Unity
Day 3

Welcome back for Day 3 of Growing in Unity.
It sure has been fun sharing my creations with you this week.
Cant believe its almost over.
But its not over until its over right?  

So lets get going.....
For day 3, I have a little something special for you.

This is one of my favorite projects so far.
I loved how it turned out.

I started out with a  blank canvas. Using my Deco Art Media paints and crackle paste, I jump right on painting away at my canvas.  I kinda had a vision of what it would look like but really didn't know what my background would look like.  All I knew was it needed to be darker than I normally would choose. 
I just played with the colors
to be honest. 
I added a little crackle paste to add some texture.

As I waited for my canvas to dry, I searched thru my craft stash and started putting things out on the table that may just go.
I had a hard time at one point as I was adding flowers and other pieces, it just wasn't coming together like I had envisioned it.
But I didn't give up, I would walk away for a bit and come back and the next piece fit together.  
I found and old book in my stash and tore out a page, colored it up a lil with Ken Oliver Mineral Burst and added my image.
this was really the base to it all.
Finally it all came together and each piece fit where it belonged.

Here are a few more pictures of the final Canvas.

I am proud of how it turned out.
Remember, you can too do this, it just takes you trying.
I hope you enjoyed this project as much as I did.
