Objet D'art

Jennie from the Artisticstamper has started a new challenge blog called Objet d'art .
Right from the start I was full of plans to take part but the first two objets are still staring at me somehow.
This time however I have managed to make one .
I covered my canvas in Gesso mixed with purple paint. Once that was dry I put watered down blue midnight acrylic paint on it.
Then I covered the bottom half with watered down glue and sprinkled some beads, buttons, some foam letters on it.That was covered with a tissue layer and glue again. Once dry ( speed it up with your heatgun if you are as impatient as I am ) Then colour it with a few colours of alcohol ink and finally rub some metallic rub on into it.
I just love the effect .

Alles goed daar in Schotland ?
Is er bij jullie ook al sneeuw gevallen ? Het zal er dan vast prachig uitzien !
