So, as usual, I started with my Centura Pearl card, A3. I created the mountains by scraping grunge paste and texture sand over a mask torn from card. Whilst searching for those, I also found some texture glass, unopened. Hmm.... Oh yes! It has that distinctive ammonia smell, but once you get past that, it's lovely! When dry it allows movement of paint nicely. So I set that aside to dry - for about 2 hours!! I spread it on quite thick. This will be used through stencils more in the future, methinks.
The lyrics have been stamped onto card that has been coloured using Distress Inks, mixed with interference red Perfect Pearls spray. Had to be bling somewhere! Having stamped the words, I tore them out and edged each with more DI.
Paint - lots of colours, mainly PaperArtsy Fresco Finish, but with some added iridescent white, to give the mountain tops a bit of a shimmer. Plenty of dry brushing.
When I had assembled it, I added a frame using film edge stamps, which gives it closure - unlike my love of that song, and that album.
Hope you like!
