Another scrimmy piece

I know there isn't a word  'scrimmy', but it does describe this piece. Again the main bit of work, the scrim, was made on the course as a wall hanging, but I thought it looked better on a black canvas. I don't have any black walls in my house, so thought painting a canvas was a jolly sight easier.
Some tyvek was bonded on to the scrim, and heated with a heat gun. I did the heating on both side, one one side then another bit from the back to give a different effect I prefer the bubble side.
The distressed scrim was painted with gesso, and when dry, white acrylic paint. It was then painted with Golden acrylics in yes , turquoise. I must make something in pink, on the next blue moon.
At home I sewed on a load of beads, and mounted it onto the canvas.

Oh! Scrummy scrimmy Wendy. It looks gorgeous and so much better in turquoise than pink would have been! Thanks for sharing the method of working - I must try it sometime.
