Shiny Stuff

This started as a very dark blue and green background i had done some time ago, whilst browsing Pintrest i came across a post by Julie Balzer and really liked the finished article, you can see it here.

I covered the pages with a couple of thin coats of gesso, the original colours still showed through a bit but that didn't matter, i stamped with vintage photo and also rubbed the ink over the page. i then created a horizon with gesso which i made sure had lots of texture in it, then came the inky bit, used 2 colours of spray inks, letting them run down the page,

The 'skyline' was created with little black dress paint, and then the raised gessoed areas were highlighted with treasure gold, i added some stamping and a sentiment.

I would like to enter this into the PaperArtsy competition
