   I started by taking a photograph of a giraffe's eye on a field trip to the zoo and putting it on Instagram.  I resized that photo using Photoshop so that it would fit the canvas.  Then, I put a base of fabric down, and on top of that, I put Elmers glue and acrylic paint to create a crackle.   Once the crackle dried, I did an acrylic transfer of the photograph, on top of which I water colored and put gold acrylic paint.

Ta- da!
