Quiet Please

I've been finishing off a project I started in July last year.


It's a canvas, covered in torn printed text from an unwanted book. The lady & the inchie squares were taken from a Great Plains brochure.


I used Distress Inks (antique linen to age the printed quote & peeled paint around the edges). The quote is attributed to Richard Alpert.


I used oil pastels to give age & distress to the image of the lady & added a butterfly to her necklace (from The Graphics Fairy).


Two green buttons thread with brown leather cord adds a little visual interest & balance to the other side.

  1. Great canvas. I really like the greens and the strong image of the woman.

    And it's finished having been started last year!
