a quartet


or 4 challenges in one as things went wrong with this one.
Objet-d'Art is asking for a photo to be used.
Lots to do is asking for gesso-
Saturdays workout for structure paste and finally Tracy from
Creative Treasures has posted a challenge on craftsbycarolyn to use a ribbon, flower,button and the colour turquoise.
So all this in one piece.
I started with covering the puzzle piece in Gesso and did a photo transfer - it worked great- yeah but then..I put on structurepaste to give it more umpf and sprayed that with glimmermists ( yes I had masked the image)
That looked great as well till I removed the mask. The glimmer had run underneath.
So I took a shortcut and put the same image on top.The ric rac ( through the eyelets) was sprayed with turqoise glimmermist but looks a bit green on here
