1st Canvas sold

Yes my first canvas sold yesterday, I'm total in awe & have an order for another, feeling so blessed & have 2 others in my head to get out on canvas so plenty to keep me occupied for a while.

 First off I gesso the whole canvas then continued to do so as put the layers on.  Here I have the basic tree ready & have started on the background using a doily.  The bits I cut off I place elsewhere including the edges.  Thanks to Creative Jumpstart 2014  (  who shared the use of brown paper bags.

My next step was to place in some background using modelling paste, I little tricky with the tree already glued down.

I continued to layer elements & gesso as I went until I was happy with the final result. Lace, buttons, beads, flowers, charms (From & other odds & ends that I save were all used.

At this stage after a number of gesso layers I had it drying on my table waiting for pastel sprays to arrive.  Yes I had plans to add more colour.  It was seen by someone who fell in love with it & promptly bought it.  Perfect for the redecoration of their bedroom they said.  Its now sealed & awaiting pick up tomorrow.
