Orb Inchie Mosaic

Yes, I was a little over ambious when making inchies for the swap at ArtFiber Fest. They were so cute sitting together on my table that I had to create a mosaic. Once again, color combos that I wouldn't normally use, but I like this one much better than my green and orange bookmark. I didn't have anything to mount them on, so I painted up a canvas. I used orange, green, and purple along with several layers of gesso. Here is the prosession of layers. In the end, I added a lot of gesso on top to mellow everything out.
