The next challenge for the Tim Holtz, (awesome book and stuff!), Compendium of Curiosities, Volume 3 Challenge #2, Distress Glitter! Sparkly fun, but this glitter is so much better! No so in your eyes, get out the sunglasses super shiny! It is much softer and vintage. This is an even numbered challenge so it is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique with a $25 Gift Certificate. In addition, Tim Holtz and Mario Rossi have made generous donations to a lucky winner as well to support this amazing challenge hosted by Linda Ledbetter at Studio L3, thank you!
Onwards, this is my mixed media piece, it is about 8 inches tall and 6 inches across, titled "Make a Wish".
The background is a heavy piece of multi-purpose paper. I coated it with gesso. Then had fun making impression into the semi- wet gesso. Then started playing with alcohol inks and Dylusions spray ink. The dandelion image is my own photo of a dandelion, textured in Photoshop Elements.
I hope you like it and do check out all the other entries into the challenge, it is a lot of fun and there is sooooo much lovely art out there!
