No, that's not a typo. A 'bard' is what I call a canvas board/greeting card.
Yes, as a student of Shakespeare in college, I do know the true definition of bard (a poet or storyteller). But what can I say, I make up random words and/or definitions. Take my word for it, or ... don't ;)
This is my third attempt at mixed media, and I was anxious to take a crack at crackle paste. My base of the 'bard' is crackle paste and modeling paste through a brick stencil. Next up: a glue frenzy with flowers and beads, lace and various other findings followed by acrylic paint and ink. I distress-inked and embossed a line of musical notes off-canvas and added that next. Highlighting was done with metallic pigments and sparkle spray.
