Mixed Media Monday - 'Time of day'


Well I thought it was about time for me to update my header as it's now officially springtime over here and my Autumn girl seems to be a bit 'old' now. So I've done a spring inspired picture and this picture to me would be the most beautiful spring morning when you realise that everything is coming back to life and it's finally warming up. Spring mornings are a great time of day!!!


This was done on canvas with acrylic paint, some stickers, and I also used the crackle effect. But I sometimes find that I just enjoy layering the paint on top of each other using the crackle effect. If I'd put the yellow slightly thicker then the crackle would be more noticeable. But I wanted to be able to still see the blue underneath. Anyway it was fun experimenting.
