Medium Techniques

This layout is one I did to show various techniques and applications of mediums.
I began with a white piece of cardstock.
Using Matisse Texture paste and a knife I ran the paste around the perimeter of the cardstock.
I made 4 fibre flowers by wrapping it around my fingers and securing the middle.
I then positioned them in the corners with texture paste and ran a few lengths of the fibre around the perimeter.
When this was dry ( 24hrs to be safe)I painted everything with Matisse background paint and allowed to dry.
I altered the photo in Photoshop and using Matisse Gel Medium I stuck the photo down.
I then ran a thin layer of Texture paste around the photo and using the back of a paint brush ran lines through the paste. When this was dry I repainted it and then using gold rub Dabbers I dabbed here and there on the flowers and around the photo.
The alphabets were stuck on and are Basic Grey stickers. I didn't have enough a's so used the negative of the Basic Grey Monogram.

Wow what a great layout. A fantastic technique. It sounds easy to do but yields such a great effect.
