Phase 1 of the New Project

My latest project is kind of a "recycled" piece. It's a tissue paper and matte medium painting on a canvas.  Then I am going to add can lids using Shisha or a variation of it. Shisha is Indian mirror embroidery. I did a mock up in Illustrator to see if I was crazy to even try. 

I've got the background on the canvas now, but it's not quite the way I saw it in my head. So.... I have been living with it for a few days. I think tomorrow I will try adding some of the lids. What's the worst that happens??? I can always collage over it!

  1. I LOVE the look of your background. Don't know a thing about Shisha - - - never even heard of it before. Can lids??? You are one imaginative gal - - -
