Think Big

I really had fun making this 11x14 mixed media canvas.  I started out with red & orange soft body acrylic, then randomly stenciled on some letters in various sizes.  The big splatters & drips happened by accident but I thought they looked cool so I decided to keep them.

I used a white Pen-touch pen to write in:
Don't Live Down to Expectations, Go out there and do something REMARKABLE
&
 The greatest Pleasure in life is Doing what people say you can't do
Both sentiments came from some Cosmo Cricket scrapbook paper I had in my stash.

I cut the letters from Cosmo Cricket Get Happy, Strip Tease and glued them on with Mod Podge.  I also did some random stamping, misting and added a rubon.  I'm pretty happy with the grungy urban vibe of this piece. 
Thanks for stopping by!

  4. This is too cool! I love the color, but I really love the detailing--the stenciled alphas in the corner, and the chinese/japanese lettering throughout! TFS!
