Dream Out Loud Mixed Media Canvas

Every year africanwellfund.org has an auction called GotWater? that raises money for various clean water projects. This year i have created a special piece and donated it to the auction to be bid on.

It's 8"x8" layered with different acrylic mediums and mixed media. The quote on it comes from Bono and is one of his most well known quote and song lyric. I love it so much i have it tattoo'd on me :D

The photo is taken with Hipstamatic's new double exposure option that i coupled with red and green gel filters. It was taken last week in New Orleans at Metairie Cemetary.

It's placed in a slide casing that i glimmer misted then took a heat gun to to melt it and give it the interesting warpng. The burlap sack is a coffee sack i found at Scrap Box recently - it's for real from Venezuela :D I also used some little tidbits i've been keeping from other projects over the years. I knew they'd come in handy some day.

The background is really layered with a lot of acrylic paint, punchinella stencil and golden mediums. Also i sprayed fluid acrylics and glimmer mists on top of the paint after it dried. I finished it off with some dripped candle wax - it's from a Feng Shui candle i burn that symbolizes Strength.

Bidding is open until November 12 at AWFs ebay page along with many other items.
