Struggled with this one. I made the background too dark initially and it overpowered the 10x10 canvas. Ended up going over it with watered down white gesso. Then I used cerulean went up and down the value/tint scale worked it monochromatically and stamped into it.
I'm happy with it now. I have to laugh-- wrote a serious blog about myself and posted it on the wrong blog. To make matters worse it was about artistic intellect and sensibility and my personal experience. I have to laugh--I just have to....:)
