My scrapper efforts

soooo everybody knows I'm not a scrapper, Tracy from FTN gave me a photo of her beautiful daughter to see what I could create with it...I have to say I am quite pleased with how it turned out :) I have put some better pics than the originals up...notise the light difference depending on where I place the art.
Sherry has had a sneak peak and wants some details of how I achieved the background...
*paint background with chosen acrylic colours (I always streak three)
*use a gold metalic ink and sponge over a chosen mask or stencil (I use Tattered Angels)
*stamp with an embossing pad and flourish stamp around the edges
*heat emboss using a gold powder
*mask/stencil with impasto
*stain with Moonglow's Starburst Stains
*smear with wax rub on (treasure gold or rub n buff)

Have fun :)

I love the depth and texture you achieve with all of your work. Great scrap page although I think it's more mixed media art than scrapbooking.

I just totally love it not because it's my daughter but its different to what i would have achieved with the same photo.
