Nature Yarn and Eggshell

 Click image to enlarge!
This is a photo of the stone wall around a graveyard. The outer stone has fallen off and reveal the patten of concrete.  I always check this wall when I´m passing by. Lots of beautiful spots.

This is a photo of a half rotten, fallen tree trunk. Love the colors and pattern. 

I saw something on Youtube that inspired me to create this one. It is a canvas wrapped with yarn and covered with Heavy Gel Medium colored with Tempera.

This is a disposable plate covered with Heavy gel medium and pieces of eggshell :) In this image it is not yet dry.

The artist that inspired me for these two used some kind of tiny pearls to create 3D pattens. As I don´t have something like that I used a cleaned eggshell. I can´t find anything in Sweden that resembles what she used. The artist did not clearly mention it. If you have any idea I would be happy to learn.

Wishing everyone a nice weekend. Sun is shining today so it is promising. :)

Linking up with the following memes. My thanks to the hosts:
