I started this a year ago it was suppose to be a multimedia collage on canvas. The image is a caulk photo transfer which I made the mistake of putting on too large of a canvas for its size. Also there was lettering on the photo which I wasn't able to edit out before the transfer and the lettering also happens to be backward. Is there anything I can do to improve this mess or should I toss it and start from scratch?

totally - the focal point has to be the photo.

you can cover the text with some ribbon (I personally would use a wdie ribbon that wrapped around the frame as a final touch over the whatever else you do with it).

The photo is lovely, and the wash is perfect with it. I would hate to see it trashed because of size and lettering.
So, what I would do- stick to photos and text. Add a few more photos in different sizes, fade some out to add layer and depth to it, but create a photo transfer collage.

Next, I would add more text- both frontward and backward, to make it look intentional rather than a mistake. I would add one line somewhere prominent so that it becomes to focal point for the text, and the other lines provide interest or accent.
You could even add the very same words in different fonts and values, frontward and backward again, so that they blend together, prvide the same message, but unify the error into a masterpiece.

have fun- I would love to see what you come up with as a solution!

I would leave the text backward and add other things backward. Think of it like a mirror from the inside.
