boys photo canvas

These are 2012 school photos of my four grandsons, and I made these canvasses for them, I used all sorts of things from the shed, ie screws, nails, bolts, and a lot of other bits and bobs that were destined to the rubbish bin.   I used gesso on the canvas and all the bits that I had stuck on with the hot glue gun, over pieces of lace that I had attached with the gesso at the beginning of the exercise.
I do not have any blue stains, inks so I used food colouring and water colour paints to make my sprays, I used the lighter blue (food colouring) and mixed the water colours to make the medium and the dark colours.   For a first try I think it is not too bad.
