We do all sorts of things in this group--we make cards and do mixed media stuff and learn all the new techniques that our member learn and pass on to us.
Today we were working with Paper Serviettes.
When I first discovered these beautiful serviettes I really didn't know just how wonderful they were.
Gone are the days of plain old white serviettes--they are for wiping your face when you get food all over your chin.
Now you can get them with the most wonderful designs on them which are just the thing for mixed media art.
The picture here is just one corner of a serviette and it was applied to a sheet of canvas --I should have done it on a box canvas but I forgot to take one with me but this worked ok anyway.
There are several layers of gel medium applied to the canvas and then the serviette was added and more gel medium.
Then texture paste was added around the edge--then some Tim Holtz crackle medium in 2 different colours and lastly a flourish stamp to finish it off.And this is the finished product.
All in all I am very pleased with what I achieved today.
