Gillian has completed this months techniques over at the PaperArtsy Blog. Check out here for the full technique. I used a 15 cm square shadow box but took the back off. I more or less prepared the frame the same was as shown.
I used the Crafters Workshop, Antiquities stencil with texture paste. A mixture of limelight, hey pesto, honey dew and guacamole greens and baltic blue, south pacific and beach hut blues and snowflake and nougat to mix them.
As I didn't have the wood to put in the hole, I used the thick plastic what came with the shadow box. I stamped the image from the LP #10 plate and painted it from the reverse using the same colours as above. I stamped the mini script #44 on the frame in baltic blue and used olive bronze, sapphire and renaissance treasure gold to hi-light the texture pasted areas. I went around the edges both inside and out with a very fine layer of baltic blue.
I decided that the two pieces didn't combine very well and the face was way too stark white. So I used black stazon and the mini script stamp again to stamp around the edges of the plastic and the face. To extend this, I carried it through in a few areas onto the frame.
Still not being a 100% happy with it, I went back to it this morning and added some gems and some white pen!!!
