This week's was Inspiration Avenue creative challenge was all bright and gleamy - the theme was "Shine".
I very rarely use shiny things in my work - I'm much more naturally inclined to rusty, tea stained or otherwise aged things. I like that about the challenges though - they make you step outside your comfort zone a bit!
For this mini canvas I've used some silver acrylic paint, along with sequins and tiny little metallic hearts (I think they were originally from a confetti packet!) to decorate. I'll be adding this (and a few more of these mini canvases with easels) to my etsy shop this week.
