Time flies-and Rust never sleeps...
Recently , I pulled out some journals and decided it was time to fill in the unused pages-
The first couple of steps consisted of tearing ,cutting and adhering clock faced paper with Decou-Page Matte sealer-I saved a few of the faces for later. I did some stamping on another sheet as well- The Muse of Future Past and Domino Shrine stamps are both from Lost Coast Designs
and the I Will Soar ,wing stamp, is Pam Carriker's
Next I applied a coat of Americana Muted Gold along with glazing medium-keeping the color heavy in some areas
Now for my colors- all which were mixed with glazing medium.
White, Paynes gray, Phthalo Blue(Red shade) Quin,Magenta and Americana Dark Scarlet
Next I used modeling paste mixed with the Muted Gold along with
stencils from Seth Apter- Urban from his new series and his Past Present Future
Next, a wash of Quinacridone Nickle Azo Gold was applied to the page.

Time to add my stamped images which I colored using Distress Markers- apparently- I forgot photos! As you can see in the photo above, I stamped 2 shrine arches,one lighter than the other and layered them off center. The muse was added on top of these. For the wings,which I added the clock face to; I decided painting them white would give a nice contrast to the overall page.
And then to finish, I added some outlining and shading.
Thanks for your visit-and are you dressing up for Halloween?
I am- i'm going as a cool art chick! teeheehee
