More Scraps



here is the current progress of the hexagon patchwork of scraps...
starting to look like a flowery something...
lots of the scraps are now gone after they're deemed too small for this..

and then I was gifted with someone else's scraps..
lots of bits (that fill a small suitcase)...
leftovers from her patchwork days...


 
so I found a few that sort of go together....
ending up a bright quilt...
for Mr One....
who may or may not see the bird, dogs, fish and dinosaurs...

Oil Portrait on Canvas

 well actually a damaged canvas from the tip shop. it wasn't  torn when i bought it, just used.
 i started to paint a landscape, didn't like it , so scraped the paint off & when the canvas was dry i put a mauve wash over it.
i like the colour coming through the mauve & the textured parts where i used thicker paint with a palette knife.
there was a big wind here one day that blew the canvas to the ground & it hit something on the way down.
 tears from the back......& on the front above the eyes they look like cracks.

Vintage/Retro Style Collage/Mixed Media

 stamped more red spots......at the top & the sides......

& i think they are finished.
i started with a black book cover as the base, old torn book pages, sewing pattern paper, magazine pages & torn painted book page paper (black squares), cardboard packaging with circle cutout as a stencil for the red dots & a paper doily as a stencil with gel medium to create some texture,  an old wine cork as a stamp (broken red shapes), all paint used  is acrylic.
