Guest Designer - Yvonne Yam

Today I am introducing out Guest Designer for the month of April ....

Please welcome Yvonne Yam

Greetings from sunny Singapore! It's Yvonne Yam here to share my first project as this month's guest designer - a 6x6 mixed media canvas.

The base was created by adhering random bits of lace to the canvas using gel medium. After a layer of gesso, I painted the canvas with some Silks acrylic glazes. Then I added some found metal objects - a bobbin case, a zipper head, some old charms. I covered them with the acrylic glazes.

I wanted the Imaginarium Designs chipboard - cherished treasures to stand out amidst the heavily textured background so I painted it with a silver paint. Then "framed" it with some blooms.

Hope you've enjoyed my mixed media canvas.
Thanks for sharing that gorgeous canvas Yvonne
