I started off by placing dried fern leaves on the canvas and gluing them down, then giving the whole canvas a coat of grey acrylic. I then laid trails of PVA glue and added sand. To this a dropped in acrylic inks and then tipped the canvas about to allow the drops to run where they will.

I then added some multicoloured glitter while the ink was still wet, to give it an added sparkle, and finished the ferns off in metallic green.
