*SuMmeR* {EST challenge Wk.2}

After setting up my etsy shop ( I decided to join the European Street Team (EST). Not only are they a really supportive and friendly bunch but they also organise a weekly challenge for its members. This weeks theme is 'Summer', hosted by Nanouke who won last weeks challenge - congratulations Nanouke!

So here is a new piece that I'm working on with this challenge in mind - It's called 'Pop'. Its a 12"x 9" canvas which has been collaged using a variety of stripped scrap material. The background is a midnight teal with a shimmery finish. The petals have been individually made, using brightly coloured tissue papers and gloss glaze. I've still got a bit of work to do before its ready :)
