Almost art


One thing DH always asks for it art for his office – other than that he isn’t particularly keen on crafty gifts.  This year I made him this canvas:



I had originally planned to stick on some photo corners so he could swap in and out photos, but in the end he seems to like it just as it is.  And when DS saw it, he wanted it, but settled for one a bit LIKE it for himself (birthday coming up so that works for me) as a quick discussion told me his colour-blind self could “see” that this was blue and orange just fine.  That one isn’t done yet but as he is having some input on it, it won’t be a SURPRISE, per se, and I can share as soon as it’s done.

Here is a detail shot which shows the texture, and the use of Gelli print scraps in the collage part of it:
