Mistake ?

I finally had some time to play around with backgrounds this afternoon. There was a nice background layer of inks and metallic markers. Next was supposed to be scrunched up tissue papers.

More than half the bottle spilled all over the piece. Aargh!

So what do you do? Pour off what you can, brush off the rest and then scrunch the whole thing up into a ball. Next, open it up, put it inside a sheet of wax paper and scrunch it up again. Mash it, roll it – but don’t keep it that way too long.

Peel it back open and you’ve got the great start on a very nice background!

The images, mica, and aging created a haunting look to the piece. A little ‘bling’ added some zest.

Can you find the face of the second female?
