Sunday Afternoon Work-in-Progress

Today I took some time to work on a canvas that I'd sketched out in my idea journal quite some time ago. After the application of paper, rolling on acrylic paint with a brayer is one of my favorite techniques.

Rather than waste paint, I rolled the extra on my Magic Foam Stamp and created a texture-rich background on a journal page.

Add a little more texture and design by printing with bubble wrap...

...and then corrugated cardboard (thanks to Dunkin' Donuts coffee sleeves :)

A section of green acrylic finishes off today's work on this canvas. Stay tuned to see the completed piece.

Happy Sunday!
