Two Mini Canvas

I have made decorated two mini canvas the first one was using DecoArt media acrylicbackground then dripping my new Pebeo Prisma Fantasy paints which create a honeycomb surface when dry.The second one was made just by having the easel on my desk and whenever I finished painting anything instead of cleaning my brush I just swiped it on the canvas and added frantage while last layer was wet.
