Everything you can imagine is real

Today, I played again with the Fresco Finish paints and tried to recreate a background like we made in the Secret Garden class last week. This is the result.


I used some old papers and glued it to a piece of Kraft paper. Then I coloured it with Rusty Rose and Haystack. These colours match the colours in the paper. Using Snowflake and two templates I added diamonds and a clock. Then I sealed everything with Multi-Medium.

When that was dry, I added more and more colours. I used Old Gold on top of the clock, which gives a shiny effect. Some embellishments and a steampunk stamp finished this project.

Oh my goodness Mark, the colours look beautiful, and they all blend into each other seamlessly. It looks stunning! Lin will be impressed - she's away for a break this week!But I'm seeing her this weekend so I'll tell her to take a look!
