Gingersnaps - Metallic

Not entirely sure that this qualifies as it uses metal not metallic effects, except for the GMs. The newest challenge at Gingersnap is to use metallic paints and effects on your piece. A new challenge is set each week and each one lasts for 4 weeks giving you plenty of thinking time and plenty to think about.

This piece is an 18" x 14" canvas coloured with acrylic paints and then sprayed with GM's and memories mist. TSS metal in Pearl and Dark Chocolate cut to size, the two un mounted panels were textured on a TSS plate, two were run through the big shot with the owl and the tree embossing folders and the final piece of pearl wrapped around 3 canvas boards to create a plain raised panel. Two small canvasses were painted with Glimmer mists and Memories mist. Everything was then attached to the canvas with strong glue. Steam alochol ink was rubbed over the embossed pieces to remove some of the coating adding defination and relief to them.

A colleague has decorated his living room cream and brown in a minimal style. He has also been very compliementary about my stuff so this is for him and his partner. Bit too neat and tidy for my style, was very glad where the paint got under the masks and messed the stripes, painted over them leaving them a bit messy and fuzzy much more my taste!
