Here is a small mixed media canvas I've made.

It is just seven centimetres square, so really rather mini!

I played around with gesso, washi tape, water soluble art bars, matte medium and watercolour pencils on the background.

I added three shaped buttons with a needle and thread.

It was crying out for a word or two.  I don't really do words very well!  I looked at the rub ons that I had and decided 'wish' was the best fit.  I used my posca paint pen to highlight the rub on and then pushed it back in to the canvas by smearing the tiniest bit of gesso of the top.

I'm really pleased with how it's turned out :)

Thanks for stopping by
