Mixed media Canvases

I have created some mixed Media Canvases using a heavy weight grey board and a circular MDF shape.

This first one I have painted acrylic blocking on the background and added interest over that using paints and stamps – I then added a stamp from Polkadoodles Absolute Vintage Collection Stamp Set, a sentiment and a circular metallic embellishment from my stash.
