I made this 6" by 6" mixed media canvas for LeapFeetFirst in the IYP 22.  Its a fat canvas that I cut a niche into and attached a box that I made out of scrap mat board.  Collaged over with torn text, painted with many washes of my favourite (phthalo) turquoise blue (Golden Liquid acrylic), a little antiqueing with burnt umber and spattered with Quinacridone Violet.  The heart is celluclay with copper roofing nails on top.

This is beautiful, and I love the text on the back. The simple deep niche is such a great idea, too. It would be perfect when you have some little decorative thing to give someone, but it seems too insignificant as a gift. This sort of niche is a great way to turn it into something more substantial.

thank you Smiley  I'm kind of obsessed with niches lately so envision a few more of these-you're so right Wulf, a niched canvas makes a great base for a smaller piece.
