Mixed media 8x8 canvas

Hi :) Doesn't Kaya look like a little doll in this photo? I'm looking forward to my nephew's wedding on Saturday when Kaya will be flower girl! She's so cute! Of course, I'll be with all my other little great nieces and nephew too, so lots and lots of photos ;)
 I've been experimenting and creating some pieces of mixed media art but haven't really been sharing many on here yet. It's a completely different style of crafting from what I normally do but there is something fascinating about this that is very therapeutic and relaxing. Of course lots of stuff gets binned  - I try to be precise and neat but it just doesn't look right with this style!
I've been using Liquitex Spray Paints, Liquitex Gesso, Reeves Modeling Paste, and lots of products from the Trimcraft Santoro range.

 I made the spray to coordinate by mixing Derwent Inktense block shavings with water and Liquitex Professional Acrylic ink....so many ideas for this result!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment, it's lovely to hear from you. Ruth
