Paint Party Friday Week 37

Another week has flown by, and it's time for PPF again, hosted by Kristin and Eva. Do hop over and take a look at the work of the other participants if you can! I have painted a mixed media piece. I started off with my momentary favourite colours, 2 shades of blue, yellow and white, which I applied with a wide brush. Then I took some of the strips of Embossed paper and a small piece of ledger paper which were in my parcel from Donna, and fixed them to the painting with Golden gel before partly colouring over them. I used Inca gold to add the gold highlights. The wings have been die cut from some old book pages, embossed, and also coloured with gold and blue. The picture in the middle has been cut out of a prospect which I got in a previous parcel from Donna. I added a feather for texture, some lace, some non-woven fibre material, a few remnants of *gold* leafing and some buttons. Then I melted some candle remnants and used the wax to pour over the paper strips, spread it with a plastic card, and stamped into it with a script stamp while it was warm. I then rubbed more Inca gold over it to highlight the stamping and the texture. The pictures show the beginnings, and then the finished work.






And I made some rather crazy pages in my journal, using lots of different techniques, just having fun, just picking things up,and colouring and pasting without a plan. Just seeing what happens. I think I will call it *Fragments of my mind*

So, that was it for today. Have a good day you all, take care and thanks for visiting!
