Mixed Media Monday - Transparencies

This week on Mixed Media Monday, we have the fabulous Femmy as guest host. Femmy chose the theme "transparencies", and I found this lots of fun to work with. This piece is done on a piece of matt board, 6 inches by 4 inches. The different "ingredients" used include collage papers, page from an old book, gold German scrap painted and inked, lots of distress inks, and a transparency, that I burned the edges of, and painted with matt gel medium to take the shine off. Thanks for a fun challenge, Femmy!

Diane, this is lush! What a 'delight'!! I'm fascinated by the fact that you burnt the edges of the transparency... very brave!! I'm dangerous enough just doing soot stamping!!
