Layers, Layers, Layers
I thought I would try to document the process on this little piece, and I actually remembered to take photos of most of the layers as I added them.
I started with a square of mat board, approximately 3.5" square. This is how I use up my mat board scraps most of the time. The first layer is pattern pieces adhered to the mat board with gel medium. Once that dried, I covered the surface with a layer of glazing medium. This gives it a slick finish that enables me to play more with the paints and inks in the next layer.
Here is the piece with the second layer. I added some blue and green inks first, and once those dried, I added some yellow acrylic to brighten up the green areas.
Here is the next layer, and I love what this layer added to the piece! I used a piece of gridded plastic and white spray paint, applied in a random pattern, for this layer.
Tomorrow....... a few more layers get added.
