Framed Lady


I used one of the pieces of wood I picked up at the local timber yard a few days ago to make this. The frame is made from chipboard and embossed in a script.  Painted in baltic blue fresco paint and hi-lighted with pewter treasure gold.  I painted snowflake directly onto the wood, applied the LP main image with matte medium.  The image was stamped onto crackly tissue paper and painted from behind with fresco paints.  Once it had all dried I painted the background in beach hut fresco paint.  The scroll type things are rub ons. The top one actually brought a lot of the paint off when I rubbed it on, but I simply went back in with beach hut and because it's translucent, it covered the white but let the rub on show through.
