Hello there, friends! We've got a new challenge at Bleeding Art - come join us!

This was done on a sheet of canvas from a pad I have. I'd never used it until now 😀.  I slathered on some concrete paste and then added watered-down black gesso and purple violet rust paste. My B&W pic is framed with chipboard pieces. I laid it on top of some scrap screen I had and cheesecloth. 

Once I got it in the frame, I decided to go off the frame in a couple spots. And when I was drying the frame (it started out as brown and ugly 😬), I used my heat gun to add bubbles - I call it 'warting'! 

I love the combo of black & purple! I hope you'll stop by Bleeding Art and enter our challenge - this month's sponsor is Beacon Adhesives!

I'm entering this at Mixed Media Academy!
