Deep Waters - mixed-media collage

People say if you jump into deep water you have to learn to swim.


Collage on canvas - 20x60 cm (8x24'').

In short words the whole composition was build using art mediums from my Prima Art Basics Line:
Modeling Paste for texture and gluing, Heavy Gesso in Black and White for priming and color, Clear Gesso for altering the photo.
Colors are  a mixture of Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Sprays, Primary Elements Pigments with water and Silks Acrylic Glazes (Solar Gold, Ginger Peach, Pink Antuhrium, Fuzzy Peach, Jasmine).


Here are some of the details - I'm happy with the elements I gathered and the final composition - especially about lights and deep colors.




I'd like to thank you to all my friends, students and followers who keep supporting me both sending love, encouragement and good energy of all kinds... and sharing their precious "treasure" collections with me too :) Thanks to you my heart is full of love and courage -  and all my rubbish boxes are always full of amazing stuff and wonderful memories:)
Thank you. You make miracles happen.

Sending warmest hugs to you all


P.S. Can you spot your treasures on my project? I'm sure some students from France, Finland and UK should!
