Mixed media canvas 'Art is the answer'

Hi everybody!
So excited, my first post as a Dusty girl!
I have been wanting to alter a brush for quite some time now, and now I finally decided, let's do this!
I used one of my favorite chippies from The Dusty Attic, the Lacey Trims, which I love to use to create an elegant composition.
I started with Creative Script Stencil and modelling paste on my canvas.
Meanwhile I painted the chipboard and brush with white gesso. I painted the flower too.
When all was dry I glued them on my canvas with 3d gloss gel.
Then I used on the chipboard and brush Clear Crackle Varnish

The lighter blue parts got a little extra paint, light patina.
I was inspired by the gorgeous brown, white, teal and rusty colors from the

I really love the quote. It is definitely something I need to remind myself very often.
Feelings and emotions need to get a place somewhere in your mind, and I for sure know that making art is one of the things that helps me deal with my feelings and fears...so...
Art is the answer.....
Thank you for watching!
Love, Sanderijn
