This is my take on the theme: Happy! Happy! Happy! I loved doing this wall hanging for three reasons: 1) the metal frame with a gecko was handmade by my son and given to me as a gift 2) metal parts and mixed media are my fav things to work with 3) love nature and wild animals seem to be so happy to me
I primed the thick piece of cardboard with heavy gesso.
Then applied texture paste through the stencil. Next it was time to attach the frame with extra heavy gel medium. Time for the best part! I hoard lots of broken jewelry and the gecko received a large amount.
