Creative Therapy with Wholey Sheets

I made this layout inspired by the prompt #4 at Dirty Scraps – “In Your Eyes”.

I created this layout using my newfound technique of creating texture with acrylic paint and gesso (tutorial coming soon!). Then i also grabbed some supplies from my new favorite kit from Gauche AlchemyWholey Sheets Mixed Media Kit.

I am so in love with plastic canvas – the options are limitless!!! Here I used it as a frame with no backing so you can see through it!!!!! And I also used some of the screen from the kit, spray painting it a little to give it a red hue. Just love all the texture both things provide!
