Collage


Created for the Saturday's Workout Challenge. I started by spraying an old book page with Sticky Fingers Lustre Sprays in Aubergine, Red, Aqua, Lemon and Green. I then added a little gesso, and sprayed it with MoonShadow ink in Batchelor Blue. The piece was then resprayed with the Lustre inks and heat dried. Next I stamped over some background paper which was originally an acrylic background which I had scanned and printed off. I tore this into small pieces, edged them with Pool ink and attached to the card. Next I attached the rest of the collage elements, the butterflies, the main image and finally little Prima flowers. Such a shame the scanner doesn't pick up the sparkle in the background!
