#1 Recycle a food package.
I used a muesli bar box...a little small, but all I had.
#2 Mix some gravel, beads with paint or gesso to create texture.
I mixed river sand with bronze acrylic paint.
Spread the paste onto your substrate'
#3 While still wet place strips of material, ribbon etc.
I used a blue lacy material.
#4 Attach smaller piece of cardboard to your work and use some more of the sand/paint mix.
#8 Using a background stamp stamp over canvas.
Due to so much texture I could only do this in the centre of the piece.
#6 Using 3 compatible colours spray or drip paint, inks down the work.
I used Daler & Rowney Acrylic Ink.
#7 Use pieces of tape that have been hand made.
#9 Use 1 to 3 pieces of metal or wood items to create focal point .
I used wooden embellishments and a wooden button which I fastened as well as the two pieces of cardboard with copper wire.
# 10 Find a quote from Shakespeare to use as your title.
Since my grandson played Puck in Midsummer Night's Dream I decided to use a Puck quote.
Finish off by inking the edges. Oh my gosh I just realised I missed the last one. To spray/splash coffee on piece. Whoops!
I really enjoyed the challenge. Had a lot of fun and dor the first time ever the art work led me.
Sorry that I got things a bit out of order and thanks for looking.
