Testing shopping and having fun

 The wave!
I tested some homemade think pasta. Sadly it is cracking so I used the blue paint "water" to glue it. Seem to work but it is rather fragile. Was thinking of adding a white tree but changed my mine. I like it as it is.  A very small canvas 12x18 cm

The beach!
Teh otehr day I was shopping! They have set up a DOLLARSTORE in my town and this was my first visit. I found the little black canvas above and the DECORglas, in the shell, and bought them. Also used remains of the pasta in the beach. And, giggling, the sand was once collected by my mother in Teneriffa :) 

The red beam!  20x20 canvas
This was mainly a failiure. I tested to work with stencils and straith lines with helo of tape. My mistake was I covered the canvas with tooo much black paint. The surface is slippery. That is why the paint looks dotted. Like oil it was drawn to puddles insted of an even surface.
Well, I got the idea and learned from it :)

Sometimes I wonder where I land when I "grow up" :)

  1. Wonderful creative art. Yes, sometimes we do mistakes but can learn something 😶
    Happy PPF 🌷

  2. wonderful art Monica! the first one reminds me a of a large ocean wave during a storm, and I love the shell. Happy PPF!

  3. Love all of your pieces this week, but something about the wave being cracked and delicate makes it even more special and interesting. Happy PPF!

  4. Don't know if I would call the red beam a failure. I can see a powerful story in it.
    Coffee is on

  5. So much movement captured in those waves, magnificent depth of texture.
    Your Red Beam canvas is fabulous, those beams are like the deer are caught in the headlights and the over use of the gesso adds much more character to your canvas. It's a happy little accident. Happy PPF Tracey x

  6. These pieces are wonderful. Color, texture and movement. Love them.

  7. What a wonderful try! :) My best regards from Romania! :)

  8. Oh my goodness! Your painting of the waves took my breath away... It fills my eyes--which is the greatest compliment I can give. How extraordinary! <3
