Following is the continuation of the mixed media piece of previous posts.
|After applying the structure paste letters one by one with drying between, this is how it looked.|
|Then it was time to add smaller details. I pulled out some very old stamper things, and applied paint with them.|
|See? very small, but necessary for fillers.|
|Then comes stamping, in this case with paint, but any kind will do. I made a left side border.|
|After it dried, I intensified it with some marker lines.|
|The music sheets were too prominent, so I put some washes of color over them.|
|The extra paint gets put on another in-progress sheet., in the letters you see. Don't waste paint.|
|Then I painted in the lower words, and added outlining in markers.|
|And used more markers, inside and along the letters. I used a gold pen to accent letters, flowers and stamped marks.|
To finish, we add whatever embellishments strike our fancy. They don't have to be flat. I chose to use some natural materials and some papers, both cut from the painted papers, I made and from some scrapbooking papers.
|I cut out the main letters from scrapbooking papers and used a marker to accent the edges. This is important to make them stand out.|
|Parer letters added.|
|Here you see the gold pen marks.|
|I used a glittery gel pen to write along the vertical color change line.|
|I cut out quantities of leaves from painted papers, and didn't use most of them, for this piece, but will for something else.|
|So this is after embellishing with leaves and such. The paper will be mounted on a sturdier board to flatten it.|
So, that is one sample. Maybe you will see one or more others.
Now, party time.
