It was a lot of fun (and a bit of a challenge) to create something with No Plan or Purpose in mind before doing so. I started with a few of my favorite collage materials, some matte gel medium, a 16 x 20 canvas panel and an open heart. I decided to go with the flow and see what happens. Since you have all been so kind as to comment on my progress, I thought it would be interesting to show the Results to you step-by-step. Here's what I came up with . . .
Soften the background with cream and pink acrylics
Add scalloped edges and a decorative curtain. Sand.
At this point, I knew there would be a disco ball in the center.
Highlight and define with white paint and charcoal.
I found a vintage image from a greeting card that I outlined with charcoal and burnished onto the canvas to serve as the base for my central figure. I then spent time defining and painting the figure before adding crystals and glitter to her dress, disco ball and drapes.
The Final Result . . .
"Under the Disco Ball"
16 x 20 Canvas Panel

Thanks for joining me on my journey! Let's do this again sometime . . .
