Autumn Leaves Canvas

Hi everyone, here is this evenings handy work.

Via my friends on Twitter, Jax, Helen, Lin & Sam to name but 4, I came across the Arty Inklings Blog page and decided to have a go at the September Canvas Challenge...

And here it is...........

(the clock doesn't work, the hands are stuck on) 

I used all sorts of acrylic paints in tubes (from Lidls), metallic paints (the children's stuff from Tesco), Papermania acrylic paints and just splattered it on with a 3/4" flat brush, twisting it as I went. 
I also added some Two Tone Golden blue ink into some of the paint to add interest. 

Two of the corners were created simply by mixing some Tesco Value All purpose filler with some acrylic paint and then slapped on with the back of a knife. I also used the filler through the clock face mask.

The foliage and the letters were die cut / stamped and then coloured in the same colour ways as the canvas base, then, once dry, attached with Collall 3d glue.

The wooden hands & cogs were added for interest.

I'd like to enter this into the September Arty Inklings Blog Challenge 

Thanks for stopping by my blog today
