This is my effort for the
'TRY IT TUESDAY' challenge.
This is the first time I've tried doing this type of background technique.

The canvas on the left was a wash done, with yellow, then ocra and then burnt umber, it didn't come out too bad for a first try but I felt something was missing.

The canvas on the right is the finished effort. What I did is I got hold of a Brilliance coral ink pad and added colour around the edges.........I got the effect that I wanted. I've called the collage 'MIO SOLE' = 'MY SUN'

H ave to say I'm proud of my self as I finally took the time to try problem I'm more or less computer illiterate do I upload the photos to take part in the challenge !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
