'SanD in mY Toes' Mixed Media Canvas...

hello all, hope youre well!

after i made my 'BeACh' mixed media canvas [see my recent post], i asked in a local seaside cafe if i could display the piece on the wall, as i thought it went well with the location, and the seaside/beach theme they have in the cafe, and they said i could, which was great, and theres always different art on the walls every month.

i set about creating another mixed media piece to go alongside the 'BeACh' canvas, and i also wanted this one to have a beach/seaside theme, so i decided on 'SanD' as a theme and set about making it...

plastic, paper and metal elements, on. gesso layer, on. homemade 'sandy' paint spray, on.
then, some watercolours...
can u see the different layers of paints, sprays and watercolours...!? [see a sneaky layer of drippy blue watercolour, too!?] also, GESSO 'BUBBLES' :)
then, i added some gesso to the middle section with the letters as i wanted them to stand out a bit more...
... and some drippy glue layers.
then the fun bit, i added LOADS of buttons, beads, pearls, gems and real shells to the canvas:
so, what do you think of the finished piece!? both canvases are now on display in the cafe, but if they dont sell after a month, they will be available to buy, so if youre interesed in this 'SanD' canvas OR the 'BeACh' one, please comment on either blog post, or contact me via twitter or Facebook [links below] and ill let u know if theyre still available. i also LOVE doing custom mixed media pieces, so take a look at my previous blog posts, twitter, facebook and instagram for photos, details etc.
