Mixed Media Monday Challenge - Numbers


This is my first entry for this challenge, it is called "Counting by the Rule of Thumb". The background is acrylics on watercolour paper, with stamping in Gesso. The techniques is from the online Softly Spoken class run by the Altered Diva Karyn Gartel - http://www.altered-diva.com . The idea came from the method used in the UK by workmen to estimate building materials needed.
