Mixed Media Monday - Paint

The talented Natalie is our guest host on Mixed Media Monday again this week, and this time she has chosen "paint" as her theme. Great opportunity to pull out the paints and a canvas board (this one is quite large for me - about 20 x 25 cm, or almost 8 x 10 inches). I used tissue paper and modelling compound for the texture. There is quite a bit of gold paint used to highlight the texture, but unfortunately, it doesn't show too well in the scan. I don't know why, but German Scrap seems to find it's way into everything I do lately, LOL! Oh, and that's a little chipboard flourish in the upper right hand corner.
