What are you most proud of?
This was my first attempt at a larger piece of wall art. My piece was a little too small for the 16x20-inch artist canvas and way too large for the next size down so I added some muslin strips to the edge and stretched to get it to wrap over the edges of the frame. Maybe I can hot glue something to the edge to hide the muslin but for now it is a great learning experience.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It is difficult to plan ahead on these pieces and you don't know what it will really look like until you've got it hanging on the wall. My symetrical brain keeps trying to take over and I find it hard to be freeform in my designing my pieces.
