It's Suzanne, sharing a TAG - with lots of texture
Well, using brown is a real challenge for me. And since the Scarab was still out I incorporated it. The special thing here is that I used real papyrus for the focal image.
egyptian eye from the same stamp plate
matte medium CH-HSP24927
decoart media crackle paste DMM17
decoart mixed media varnish ultra matte
decoart crackle glaze clear
decoart dazzling metallics renaissance brown
For the base I used a piece of light foamboard, cut to shape and primed with gesso. Onto this I decoupages various different kinds of paper scraps and bits of tapes, then I applied the crackle paste. When dry I painted everything with a glaze of matte medium and brown metallic paint and added antiquing creams. Finally I dry brushed a bit of leftover lumiere paint (from painting the scarab) and melted a mix of embossing powders that I used to emboss the bug.
The scarab has been heat embossed on papyrus (my little one brought it home from a project she did at school and I kept it of course LOL - what else ...) and painted with lumiere paints covered with crackle glaze.
Thanks so very much for stopping by and have a great sunday.
Hugs, Suzanne xx
