Mini Memory for Tracey

Tracey is another member of DreamCreateInspire who's participating in the Mini Memories Swap. Here colors are Cream, Browns & Gold. And left the themes up to us. I started with canvas board and washed over some walnut ink and let dry. Mixed some 3D molding paste with some walnut ink to turn it from bright white to a more creamy color. Spread on the molding paste and used a paste paper tool to create a design. Waited and waited for it to dry. Then brushed on some walnut ink with small amount of gold Perfect Pearls to add a litter glimmer to the background. Used a variety of brown inks to add color and shading to the bottom and sides of the canvas.
Used a gold leafing pen to brighten up some metallic charm letters and adhered to the top of the canvas. Found a lovely brown vintage image, cut out, stamped some flowers in brown Brilliance ink and also used this ink to soften the edges of the image. Adhered the image to the canvas over some wing like gold colored metal charms. Used antique linen Distress ink to color 3 white paper flowers, attached them to the canvas with gold metal flowers and white flower brads.
I really like the texture of the canvas, so am glad it shows through between the raised areas of the molding paste. Hope Tracey likes my creation for her.
