It seems that fall always brings out the urge to create. I am not sure why that is-but it is true for me. Maybe it arcs back to a time when women had busy hands at night to help wile away the long evening hours. Maybe it is the heart and mind getting a jump start with holiday making. At any rate I tried my hand with a multimedia approach to covering the tops of two trays-one on glass and one on an old wood wicker lap tray. I used old paper, painted on top of the paper with acrylic paint, stamped some letters, sanded with very fine steel wool, and finished with a coat of tobacco glaze which I put on with a foam brush and then used a wet paper towel to rub off the excess glaze. I did one more sanding with steel wool and will put a matt varnish finish on them so they can be used. I am not sure I would do this project on glass again, as every time the paper got wet with product-it lifted the glue from the paper and glass. Bummer! I have always wanted to do mixed media on canvas--------so my next adventure into art may just be that!
