2017-01-19 Visible Image - stamps - dragonfly - live in the moment - Teresa Morgan

I started by Mod Podging some book page and corrugated card to my background piece of cardstock:

I added some lace and mesh before painting a layer of gesso to blend it all in and prepare for ink/paint:

Sprays are so easy to use:

Some are misted over the page, others I tapped in blobs to create more visual interest:

Let this dry… and work on the tag. I stamped the music score and blended inks around the edge:

The dragonfly is stamped with Archival ink and coloured with the Dylusions and Cosmic Shimmer sprays:

Back to the main piece – I added some stencil detail with black modelling paste:

The sentiment is embossed with black powder and highlights added with a white gel pen:

You can see some of the pretty gold shimmer here too:

I love all the texture details:

Little doodled detail:

Even the lace picks up the sparkle and shimmer:

Some details added with a white gel pen and black fineliner complete this page….
thanks for sticking through all the pictures, I hope that they help explain how I build this type of project!!
