Using the gel medium again, I stuck down a little piece of white gauze (bandaging), just painted the gel medium onto the canvas and using the paint brush, smooshed the gauze into it and painted over the top of it as well.
The gauze was then painted with a wash of Quin Nickel Azo Gold, dried, Dioxazine purple, dried and then a light wash of Paynes Grey and dried again.
This is a piece of lovely white German Scrap that is sold at the store where I work (Scraptivate). We also have the white wings and another beautiful border that looks like a scallop (plus the standard gold, silver and black colours in borders & wings!).
The white German Scrap was painted with Quin Nickel Azo Gold and dried.
Next was a coat of the Dioxazine purple, then dried.
I attached the painted German Scrap to the canvas using Golden Extra Heavy gel matte and then coated it with the Golden soft gel medium.
I printed out a quote that I wanted to use from my computer and Epson printer (with Durabrite inks) and attached it to chipboard using double-sided adhesive.
This quote was then coloured using Ranger Distress inks on a little sponge, firstly Spiced Marmalade, then Dusty Concord (a purple colour). I edged the sides of the chipboard with a mustard coloured sharpie pen....have I mentioned I LOVE my sharpies??? lol
The next step was to use some Paynes Grey on my transdermal applicator (you know....the finger) to add some depth around the image and a little around the edges of the canvas so it's not just one colour right to the edges.
