I finally finished my larger mixed media metallic canvas that I was working on, I glued on lots of metal bits, buttons, charms, brooches, jewellery findings, washers, fabric roses and anything I could find then painted over with black gesso. Once dried I highlighted all the edges using metallic acrylic paints.
I’ve taken a few close up shots as well as the whole thing but the pictures aren’t very good due to the shine of the metallic which catches the flash and doesn’t show up too well but you can get the general idea.

Here some nature inspired pieces I created using conkers I’d found on the ground (otherwise known as Horse Chestnuts), I flipped over an art canvas and used the back of it to glue the conkers in using resin:
Its that time of the year where you can find plastic skeletons everywhere, I originally bought myself a pack to alter, but decided to see how they would workout as cheap alternatives to stencils!
