Here are some close ups....
I primed all of the chipboard with black gesso, then painted the pieces with clear crackle paint. Once the crackle dried, I painted the red-orange pieces with the Jasper Red -Silk, & went over the Jasper Red with the Cowabunga Copper. For the blue-green I used Azurite Silk, let dry then went over the silk, with the Tattered Angels-Dragon Fly
I died the red-orange pieces of lace, & cheesecloth with the cowabunga copper, I also painted the flowers with this. For the blue-green pieces of cheesecloth I used the Dragonfly TA, I also died the mini art stones with the TA...
Here are a few more close ups....



I primed the DA pearls with the black gesso, then painted them with the jasper red & cowabunga copper.




Thank you so much for taking the time to look, & I am looking forward to see what you come up with, with this months Sketch/Mood Board Challenge.....Rachelle
