MMM - Numbers

Here is my entry for this weeks MMM which for this week has the theme of numbers.




Background made using a technique learnt from Viv Bonder, where you mix gel medium with your paint and push gauze (or whatever material) into the wet paint and let dry. I'd never tried mixing the two together until now. Thanks Viv for the inspiration.


I hope you can see that I have used numbers on the stars. This canvas is actually going to be a gift for a friend, who in my mind is a Goddess, but she feels a little 'icky' about herself at the moment. So hope it cheers her up :-)
