Pieces of Me **Canvas Corps & Imgaination Crafts**

I wanted to create a piece that was about me.  I used my favorite colors (blue and green), flowers, sparkles, mists, paints, gesso, beads, and and more, so much more!!  I really just ad fun with it, and played with the elements not worrying about but just had fun!  This is really my personality in art!

I started with a 4 x 4 canvas from Canvas Corp and flipped it around using the backside as my starting point.
I painted it with various colors of mists, paints, and stains in the colors of blues and greens from Tattered Angels.

I then took random puzzle pieces let over from sets from my kids (all sizes, all shapes) and used the back side of each of them.  For some of the pieces I used gesso on them to give the paint more to sick to, but for some darker mediums I just painted it straight on.  Each puzzle piece is a different color, medium, stain, paint, mist, etc.  I just played.  I then layered the puzzle pieces as though they were exploding from the inside of the canvas out, placing layers upon layers of pieces (about 40 total).  I then added in Sparkle Medium and Mica Powders from Imagination Crafts, beads, and other fun bits on bobs that fit in the colors of blue and green.

I then added in the beaded strings coming fro the center and topped it off with e pretty flower.  The title is "Pieces of Me" because each pieces of the puzzle is something that I love, whether it be color, the type of medium, the arrangement, the sparkle, etc - it is the type of artist I am.
