I see so much that inspires me lately that I have trouble deciding what to do first. I like the newsprint canvas art that I've seen with the silhouette of birds or trees so I ripped up newspapers and decoupaged them to the canvas using Mod Podge. This all took place some weeks ago and time just slipped away and I got caught up in life and didn't finish it.
Next thing I know the melting crayon art pieces attracted my attention and I thought I would try making something along those lines. When I went to get a canvas the only one I had was the newsprint canvas. So I've married the two and made something completely different.

I did stage this shot so you could see the work in progress.
The burlap was thrown in to hide my keyboard and I was
petrified I was going to catch it on fire! LOL!
I'm happy with the final piece and have to say that it was really fun! A neat benefit of the early newsprint treatment was the Mod Podge sealed the canvas and, if I got a drip or something that didn't look right all I had to do was scratch it off and there was no evidence it had ever been there!
