I have been working on some new kits to take to Treasured Memories for National Scrapbook Day. Kits are great for earning me some extra cash (to of course buy new scrapbook materials) and uses up some of my stash. You know so i can add to the stash again. I am really happy with this one, so many things worked.
The patina color is achieved with layers and layers of paint. First paint all the piping and grout with brown. Next highlight with red, orange, blue, alchemy blue gold, black and finally white. All the highlight colors are lightly brushed onto piping and grout building the color to achieve that rust, patina color.
This took me a couple tries, and a night of sleeping on it or I would have throw the page out. Yep i was that frustrated.
I am loving layering paper, paint, texture etc... on to the next one
Lets go for 40 at the end of April!
