Here's what I've created for today's post:
Yes, I'm back showing off more of my mixed media book. If you've missed any of the previous posts regarding it, you can find them HERE, HERE, and HERE! Lol. This page is definitely multi-layer. The base of the page is canvas covered. I spritzed various Memories Mists over the page...Amaretto, Teal, and Pale Ale. The main panel was done in steps...as the panel is clear acetate, I applied drops of Color Solutions alcohol inks on the back, with a several drops of the Thinner/Cleaner and used a can of "Air Spray" to blow the puddles around a bit. I poured a bit of Glossy Accents over the colored surface, and tilted it in all directions to coat the entire piece. While wet, I sprinkled Bananan, Sand, and White Gold Art Glitter over it, and then placed a section from an old dictionary on top of it, and set it aside to dry. Once dry, I paste-embossed in Matte Black the Dreamweaver Leafless Tree on the front. Once this was dry ( I told you there were many layers!), I added this old torn photograph (actually a print) of my Gran (on the left), her sister Lorna, and my Great-Gran (who looks very much like Glenn Close). This is probably my favorite photo of the three of them. I edged the photo with some White Gold glitter, added punched oak leaves covered in the same glitter to the tree. I wanted just a bit more dimension, so this ruffled piece of green crochet lace from May Arts was the final addition.
