Finished canvas

I posted below about my latest work in progress. Well this is it, all progressed! 
I love making these luggage tag canvases, finding all the tiny bits and pieces. It reminds me of that game where you have to find as many objects as possible that will fit into a matchbox!

 I do sometimes buy things new if I can't resist them (like the little gold spoon), but it's often more fun finding or re-purposing things.
I've used allsorts here, from embroidery thread to clock parts, jigsaw pieces to a piece of old lace.
The canvas is 16 x 20" and called "Precious Remnants". I've submitted it to the Open Exhibition at Waterside Gallery in Sale, wish me luck!
