New fave

I've had the background for this one sitting around for sometime as I wasn't sure what to do with it. I attached the picture then found the text in my box, somehow it just seemed to fit! I like the soft blue/mustard combination that happened by accident. I tried to paint over the gold flakes as I'm not a big fan of these kind of stickers but even with a layer of Gesso the colour wouldn't hold.
I cut out a hat from a text about playing but just before I glued it I realised the word 'goer' was right in the middle of her forehead, just wouldn't do for a gal like Lettice!

I Love how you put things together, your hangers on your canvases are very nice too!

Oh, I meant to also say, my husband is always bringing me treasures that he rescues from the roadside. He brought home a wire yesterday that was curled and bent perfectly for a hanger, it made me think of you! :)

Your mini canvases are little gems. Do you just use a block of wood you prep with guesso? I run across old plaques (1970s-80s) at the thrift store and always think about altering them.

Oh, and you DO have to watch those bad word placements! :)
