One of those days...

I was in my studio early this morning, full of ideas for the two 8x10 canvases I am working on for trades with friends. The first, "Open Door", had a mind of it's own and came together quickly. Love it when that happens! The second, "Time", was an experiment using crackle medium, along with a rusting medium for the background. The clock was printed on rice paper and collaged on using Perfect Paper adhesive. All in all I was fairly happy with the outcome - picked up both canvases to take inside and promptly spilled an entire cup of hot coffee all over both of them. After spewing a few unprintable words, I wiped them down and voila! Instant aging! So to whomever ends up receiving these pieces... it's not your imagination... yes, they DO smell like Starbucks!!

Oh Deb...these are fantastic!! The techniques you used are so clever and creative. I purchased some crackle medium months ago and have yet to use it. You've inspired me to pull it out and start experimenting with it. By the way, I LOVE the smell of Starbucks coffee...and I'm a big tea drinker (go figure!)
