Mixed Media Monday - Create Something Round


The very talented Anni is guest host on Mixed Media Monday again this week, and she has challenged us to make something round. This was the golden opportunity to paint this large round canvas which my daughter, Danni, bought for me. I had previously painted a medium sized round canvas for the "play" theme on MMM, and this one, and a smaller one (which I didn't photograph) are to hang with it, in descending sizes. This canvas is approximately 50 cms or 20 inches, and I used acrylic paints, computer generated images, texture paste and tissue paper. Lots of fun - thanks Anni!
