One of my Christmas gifts was a check --- thanks, Mom! --- so today I went shopping. I got the starter set of Golden fluid acrylics and some glazing medium to mix with them. Yes, I have a plan...... I am going to experiment with crumpled tissue paper on canvas, followed by a wash of color using my new toys. My hope is that this will provide a textured background for a new series of collages. Wish me luck!
