Art techniques and deco



The deco page shown is for Jackie's deco which is being circulated in MMANC group. The theme is Mysteries.

The ATC backgrounds are for a gesso technique swap in arttechniquesatcs online group. I started with watercolor paper, painted it with Dick Blick gesso and turquoise acrylic craft paint. Then layered on pieces of Book of Knowledge, ca 1908. I peeled some of the paper off and then used what I had peeled off to add another layer with gel medium. I used corregated box piece as a stamp to make the grid pattern. I dry brushed gesso and more turquoise paint, and finally sprayed with gold web spray by Krylon.
