Surface Design - Add Ons

More experiments in surface design on paper.  These pages were first painted with watercolor.  Various  mediums were applied using a rubber stamp - interesting results.

Green embossing powder

Clear embossing powder; acrylic glaze wiped off

 fine glitter

coarse glitter

Which do you like best?

Go to Pink Saturday for more inspiration.

I am not familiar with this process, but apparently you know what you are doing. All your things turned out very nicely.

I love the acrylic glaze the best - it's one of my favourite techniques. I also like stamping off with gesso, then over-glazing.

Happy Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday Pat Sweetie...
What a beautiful share. You are so talented with these paper colorings and your embossing powders. I love it.

The fine glitter is my favorite, I love soft. Now the coarse glitter makes a bold statement as well. I guess really it would depend on what I was making. Job well done sweetie. A beautiful share for this gorgeous Pink Saturday.

Have a wonderful weekend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
