Collage on canvas....


Found a scrap of fabric & this is how it ended up! Strange how my mind works................lol!
First covered the canvas(5 x 7in) in beige/brown acrylic then added gesso & red acrylic through some sequin waste, added the fabric which I frayed round the edges. Used some of the resulting fibres down the right edge, added beads & some odd bits of utee & finally the butterfly, which is made of card, heat embossed in gold, feathers etc added & voila!!
