Hi there! I hope you are enjoying the weekend! Today I have a mixed media canvas to share that I made as a Father's Day gift for my dear husband Scott :) I created a collage featuring a variety of junk from my personal stash along with Prima Junkyard Findings ~ many with a personal meaning behind them which I will share with you.
Scott has many hobbies which include computers, photography and any sort of home fix-it projects. So with that in mind, from my junk stash, I adhered a couple pieces of repurposed computer mother boards / circuit panels in the upper right hand corner and bottom edge.
I featured a propeller because my Scott introduced my son Jerry to the computer game Flight Simulator years ago and now Jerry has completed his first solo flight in real life and is nearly completed his training for his private pilots license :)
I included a camera to represent Scott's love for photography. The gears, key and spark plug represent Scott's willingness to try to trouble shoot mechanical issues with our cars:
Once all the embellishments were adhered down with Prima Matte Gel and painted with Prima Black Gesso, I randomly applied various beautiful ColourArte Silks Acrylic Glazes:
