River of Bling

Here is another page that I have done for the Wanderlust class. This time just a single layout. 

As I said in the first post, I am doing these pages in an old journal, so this page started out with stuff already on it. I added a coat of gesso. 

I took a black posca pen and drew random shapes. I wasn't inspired or influenced by anyhthing I had seen, and even the prompt didn't factor into it at this stage. My only , self imposed , restrictions were that I wanted to use some old discontinued paint.(PaperArtsy Fresco paint) These were colours that had come in sets and had never really been used. 

The four that i chose did not go together so the best way to use them was to separate them.. hence the random lines. 

I added the colours, and then added gel medium between each block. 

While this was still wet I added some really old chunky UTEE in Pewter. Then I heat set it, UTEE really bubbles up, even more so when it is on glue, gel or paste. I love to watch it, it's a bit like molten lava. 

Close up of the scrummy texture. 

I then found a poem online that covered what i wanted to say really well, in relation to the prompt

It isn't easy to get a good photograph because of all the UTEE bling, but you get the idea. 

I am running a couple of weeks behind with the course, but I have been SUPER busy.. 

SECRET THINGS  are coming, very soon!!!
