Memories


Created fir Art Creations Friday. The background was a left over piece from a previous project. It started out as a colour wash in butterscotch and orangy colours. I swiped it with Tea Dye Distress Ink, and gesso. It was then stamped in Walnut stain with a post mark stamp (PaperArtsy). a torn paper border was added, stained with Tea Dye, and edged with Walnut Stain Ink. Finally, the image was applied, which was highlighted with a gesso outline, and a metal embellishment added.
