Eclectic



I noticed an online inchie challenge and decided to have a go. Now whether I will do it every week or not, I guess we'll find out soon enough. But it was very fun to work on this one today for the theme, eclectic. What's more eclectic than a post-Christmas phrase the I added at the end??? Today's "Fa la la" started as a leftover piece of transparency from a local demo last October. It was spot colored with Ranger alcohol inks, texturized with a product called Wood Icing that led to the darker more matte finish, and then gilded with Gildenglitz. I finished it off by backing it to a piece of white cardstock. What a fun time I had with this little piece.

It actually was a piece done on transparency. I spot applied a product called Wood Icing on top and let dry. Then I added alcohol inks in spots. The alcohol inks become matte on top of the Wood Icing. I used some Duo Adhesive from USArtQuest to gild the textures with Gildenglitz leafing. A Pitt Pen and wide Sharpie were used for the lettering and lining.
