Today's post is a mixed media journal page created with the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge. This month's prompt is silver and gold.
My masterpiece is below.
This page has so much glitz from the gold and silver embossing powder. The Christmas tree was cut from old dictionary paper then embossed in silver. I added another layer of ultra thick embossing powder.
This background was created by adding Elmer's glue with a platte knife. Let dry. Then drag the journal page with Delicate Gold Glitz, let dry. Finish up with Delicate Silvery Shimmer pigment ink. These inks can be purchased at Imagine Crafts. Many step-by- step projects on their blog for inspiration.
Next I emossed a tree stamp from Penny Black in silver. I love how this adds another layer.
To represent Christmas decorations I added sequins in silver and gold to reflect the Christmas balls and gold twine for the garland. The title alphabets were embossed with gold embossing powder.
