This canvas has been decorated from the back side to add dimensions.
The canvas has been covered with paper and sealed with multimedium. Then I have added paper squares, small tiles, metal bits and beads. Then, I have covered everything with black paint and drypainted it. You can find the video tutorial at the end of the post.
The text "Grip dagen" is - "Carpe diem" in Norwegian. The text has been cut, using a silhouette.
The parts used for the ground are from old typewriters, clocks, sewing machines and chess pieces. The little skier, is an old brass figure.
