This is an 8x8 canvas I started working on several days ago 
trying to get out of a mojo funk.

I started by just randomly placing papers and embellishments from on my desk
the canvas not really knowing what I wanted to do.

I used lace, doilies, chipboard,  and drywall tape for texture along with Modeling Paste through a stencil and on it's own.
2 brackets are from my extremely large Grungebord stash.
Covered everything with a layer of Gesso and began adding color.

Tattered Angels Glimmer mists, Silks Acrylic Glaze and Ranger Distress Paints
all provide the color here.

Stamping with Staz On.

Once I had layers and colors I needed to figure what to do with it.
I found this collage image in my stash and fussy cut her to fit in the frame (by Kaisercraft).
She is outlined with a charcoal pencil.
The title is also a Kaisercraft stamp.

Just a closeup of some of the texture I created.
