Conglomarama!




This was a 5x7 canvas board that has been hanging around for quite some time with Tim Holtz White Distress crackle already cracked and just waiting for color. This little thing has so much going on that I called it a conglomarama. The whole piece was just too busy without a focal point so I divided it up into four. It has a magazine transfer, packing tape transfer, stamps, collage from old torn up Bible and lookey there---lavender! That's about as much as I could stand but actually--it's ok. I did this in my closet studio here at home. It's pretty cool looking up close---actually it looks better up close!

That´s awesome! Now I will have to try some of the distress paint I have bought months ago. You really worked all this on top of the crackles? Love it!

Hi Martha,
This is totally cool! I love the texture and colors - lavender! I agree with Mary: I like them divided, too.
Also I enjoyed your "architect" writing and PhotoShop work. You've been busy!

It looks like an antique manuscript, holding secrets to be revealed as studied. Lovely...

Texture world here I go, diving into a whole new world. These are a land of adventure, makes you just want to dive in and search around for all the different texture and patterns.
