I've had lots of lovely art time this week due to being snow-bound at home! This is an original mixed media painting on a chunky box canvas, created using luggage tags, acrylic paints and various bits of ephemera.

I often use old artwork or sketchbook pages in my work, along with odd bits of lace, ribbon, and other re-cycled bits and pieces. If you look closely you can also see the words "always" and "true".

This canvas measures 11.75” X 9.5" x 1.5"( 29 x 23.75 x 3.75 cm approx.) and is now available in my etsy shop.

What a clever idea! I love it! It's like a whole art collection on one piece of art.
