I say you can find inspiration for you craft everywhere. Sometimes from friends, magazines, nature, videos and like that we can go on for our inspiration. I got inspiration for my mixed media canvas from some items that I had on my craft table. Yes, some leftovers was my idea for canvas. So watch my tutorial and watch me using Impasto paints and heavy gesso making the stripes on my canvas. I also have some fine details with micro beads, mica flakes and glass beads.
