Rena's Mini Memory

Rena choose the colors blues & greens with gold or silver for her mini memory and left the choice of theme to each individual creating the piece. I started with a 4"x4" canvas board and painted it with a mixture of white gesso and navy blue acrylic paint. When dry, I stamped flourishes with Versamark ink and heat set, also with silver and navy blue acrylic paint and allowed to dry (remember to wash acrylic paint off rubber stamps quickly).
Made a glaze out of acrylic glazing liquid, navy blue acrylic paint and a small bit of black acrylic ink and brushed it over the canvas and allowed to dry.
Used metallic silver Embossing Paste to stamp on some flourishes along the edges and let dry. Made a spray of water, gum arabic and some blue & green Mica Powders. Sprayed this over the canvas, and let dry.
Stamped a saying on aqua tissue paper and adhered to the canvas with matte gel. Stamped more flourishes with pearlescent stencil paste and sprayed more of the mica powder mixture over the canvas and let dry. Adhered mini blue metal stars to the canvas with rock candy Distress Stickles for some extra sparkle. Found a vintage image, added the word dream, glued to a large Silver colored star and covered the image with Liquid Glass and allowed to dry.
Added some blue rhinestones to the star and adhered it to the canvas.
Hope Rena enjoys this mini memory created for her.
