Another Bit Of Fun!


Hello everyone, I am Back!!
I thought I would show a page I finished recently after creating an experimental background using tin foil and black and white gesso.
I really liked the effect, and left it sitting in my room for days 'till I decided what to do with it!
Here is the background that I did not want to touch for fear of spoiling it!



And here is what I (eventually) did with it!


I used a typical photo of my eldest fella' ........yes...... can you tell he is a little over me and my ever present camera???
Here are the detail shots, the title is a very cool phrase by Scrap FX that I treated with embossing enamel by Stampendous.


Here is a better shot of that background that was soooo accidental, but just so right to my eye!
I am so going to do that technique again, for sure! Next time I will know what I am doing and will try and remember to either take a video or at least a few process shots. Yeh Yeh I hear you say, but I PROMISE!!



So that is about all I have for you right now everyone, I shall be back soon, I have a few projects to write up, have been terribly slack!
