As you can see a piece of packing never goes to waste in my studio!!
I edged the backing with DecoArt sand paste and let it dry.
No in between pictures as I really have been up to my fingers in projects all over!!
But, what I did next was to cut a piece of cardstock to fit in the center of the above board.
After covering my cardstock with vintage dictionary pages and sealing with matte gel...
I did some fancy stamping with my JFF -StampTangle Border3-Rubber Stamp, whom Altered Pages is partnering with in December.
Then I transferred an image of the deer- using DecoArt Image Transfer medium. I also added a torn piece of tissue paper with my wording at the top.
The next steps were as follows;
I used a few Niji oil pastels to blend some color into and around the center piece
Sprinkled Fresh Green Crushed Glass Glitter around the center picture and when that was dry,
I used Gold Leaf Gilt Flakes atop of the glitter.
Finally, I used my fingers to apply German Silver Gilders Paste to the dried sand texture.
I then attached this finished piece to the substrate using double sided tape
