Layered backgrounds


I watched this Andy Skinner mixed media background video and loved it, so just had to have a go, although I have none of the products he used, so had to improvise lots and lots!! All are fresco paints apart from the magenta which is a golden product, and surgical spirits and vaseline!!


Final product. Next time I will use a thicker card and a bolder centre image.
