Tattered Angels Glitz and Glam class
What you can’t see is that I went back over the top dragonfly with Tide Pool Glimmer Glam and also with Glimmer Glaze – it just adds an even prettier little shimmer to the look!
I started with a piece of a dictionary to give it a vintage look, next I took the mask of the bird and painted gesso all across it trying to smooth out the lines as much as possible. That piece had to dry for quite some time – maybe a couple of hours! After it was dry, I poured Glimmer Glaze all over it and just smeared it all across with a paper towel. Once again, the gesso acts as a resist, so the red color stayed on my red bird and mostly came off of the white pasty paint. I then spritzed a suede color on the right side to really give that dictionary an aged look. Pretty cool, huh?!
Now….off to play with new toys!
