Textured Wallhanging, Dream Love and Enjoy

Dream, Love and Enjoy

I have had such fun making a wallhanging using a Jacqueline Sullivan technique and Golden Acrylics. I prepared an Art Board using textures such as aluminuim foil, modling paste, lace , scrim etc. then these were overpainted using Golden acrylics and Interference colours, What fun it was to do. I cut the text out using my Cricut Expression. I am not sure the photo gives it full justice, but I am very pleased with it. Enjoy
