Chris' Mini Memory

June is Chris' month for mini memories on DCI group. She choose Wings as a theme and the colors purple with gold/ silver. Painted a canvas with q. nickel azo gold acrylic paint. Then covered the canvas with a mixture of light molding paste and d. purple acrylic paint. Used a flourish stamp to remove some of the molding paste and create texture, let dry.
Decided the background color looked more coppery than gold. Made a wash of purple Color Wash, acrylic glazing liquid and purple Perfect Pearls and covered the canvas, let it dry.
Rubbed gold metallic Rub-ons over the canvas.
Added silver metallic acrylic paint to the edges of the gold Polished Metal wings I did earlier to give them a distressed look. Added the wings to the canvas along with a vintage image colored with purple metallic Rub-ons, a heart lock charm, a key with dictionary banner and a music scale ribbon. Inside of the lock and the key were colored with purple alcohol ink.
