Lots of layers!

This month's challenge at Creative Artiste is sponsored by the lovely Judy, a member of our DT and you can win this glorious set of goodies!


I decided that I would have another go at, "Excessive layering", and lots of fun and dire moments doing so.
I began with a tag which I covered in white gesso and then with printed tissue paper.





I added die cut tissue shapes which I spritzed with water and then removed when dry.I then knocked back with white paint and repeated several times building up the layers and leaving the tissue in the last stage. I added inks and sponged on paint. I cut the sentiment out of vinyl on my Cameo and stuck it on, then melted wax crayons and dribbled them on.

I used wire to create balloon shapes and stuck old papers behind them. These were coloured and then filled with liquid glass and then stuck on to the tag.

The final result is really quite interesting in real life but the photography doesn't really show how the layers work.

Happy crafting!
