4x4 Friday "fish" challenge


this piece turned into an experiment with textures. The first background has got painted foam packing then this is layered over with painted anaglypta type wallpaper. I tried spraying inks on the wallpaper but the paint looked better. The third background behind the fish is painted layered tissue paper. The fish is a paper cast of a stamp dry brushed with paint. I was going to add some words but then thought it would detract from the bubbly textured layers. Quite pleased with the end result as it reminds me of the sea.
