Golden Hi Flow Acrylics on a Canvas

This is a piece that I made for the Golden shows with Louise Withers today on Hochanda.  I decided to see how my Hi Flow acrylics would work with a brayer on a canvas board.
I dribbled some of the Golden Phthalo Green Hi Flow acrylic directly onto a 5" x 7" canvas board in several areas and used a brayer to spread out the paint.  The brayer was cleaned off each time onto a piece of Clarity coated card.
I added teal and repeated the process.
Followed by Ultramarine Blue.
Then I repeated with the Phthalo Green and Teal.
Once dry, I die cut the Clarity coated card (used for cleaning off the brayer), using the Sue Wilson Intertwining circles mini striplet, did the same with plain black card, then matted them both onto white card leaving a narrow border all round on the black panel.
The left overs from the each die cut used to paper piece areas of the other.  The coloured panel was then matted onto black and each panel cut to the same size.
Before adding the striplet panels onto the canvas board, I used the lids of various items and some of the Carbon Black Hi Flow mixed with some of the High Flow medium to add circles onto the canvas.
I then repeated the process using Titanium White.
Once I was satisfied, the two panels were added to the canvas board.
To finish, two of the Quote Chips by Tim Holtz were edged in Carbon Black and added to the piece.
The remainder of the Clarity coated card was die cut to make a card (see HERE).
