Mixed Media Monday: Beauty is truth... canvas



 Over at the All that Stickles blog I have posted my project for this week's link party: Anything Goes.
I made this 7x7" canvas by trying different and new to me techniques.  I had a blast.  I hope you like it.

1 very big box of used acrylic paints bought at a Church rummage sale
