Vacation Art

I needed to paint a canvas for one of the walls in the guest bedroom. 
Started with charcoal, then moved on to rain grey, added metallic silver, brushed some more charcoal and called it good for the background. 
 I put some charcoal on a chai tea latte can lid and pressed it to the canvas.
Drizzled some sand on the corner. 
And down the left side of the canvas.   
 Bittersweet orange added to the lid and pressed to the canvas. 
Drizzled some more sand down the side. 
Grabbed a can of kitty food for the smaller circle in sand.  Pressed to the canvas. 
Grabbed the bottom of the chai tea latte can, added bittersweet orange, and pressed it to the canvas.  

I kept wanting to add white feathers to the canvas but finally decided against it.  

In keeping with the circle theme, I added a computer fan part to the canvas and decided this piece was done. 
If you stay in the guest bedroom and pay attention to small details, you'll notice this computer fan part matches the coaster I made on the nightstand. 
The newly decorated guest bedroom post will soon follow.  It will then make sense as to why this color combination was chosen for the canvas. 
Peace, Love, Laughter, and Soul Y'all.

I noticed the computer fan part right away. It's been too long since I've been creative. I wonder if I remember how?
