Dance ...

I have spent the last couple of days working on this 5"x7" canvas for a friends birthday present. I used gesso as the base then texture paste on the bottom right hand corner with Making Memories foam stamp impression. Once this was dry I applied a wash, which is a mixture of Golden's Nickel Azo Yellow and Quinacridone Burnt Orange. Next I used several pink's and oranges from my Portfolio water soluble oil pastels, as well as some gold paintstick. A little gothic text and some flourishes plus an Artchix Studio image, some wording, sunflower brads and german scrap and hey presto we're finished.

I had an idea for the Wednesday Stamper Asian theme for last week, I attempted it and quite frankly it sucks!!

Thanks for visiting.
