REDUX

You may remember I posted an art piece on the blog on Monday, inviting critique. I really wasn't that pleased with it, and wanted some other view points. The views I received were 100% that it could be improved, so here is the before and after.

I pulled off the tag and the fibers, and sanded down the area. I repainted, collaged scrap papers to the area, added some more paint and then adhered an old clip from my metal scrap stash with some bits of fiber in it. I really do like this a lot more! There is more interest and your eye moves around it better. I think I will save the tags to add to postcards, they don't seem to work well on canvas pieces.

Come see my latest postcards I've received on Postcards Buffet!
