Ginko Canvas

Today I felt like doing something totally different for a change. I made a textured background by setting Tyvek and crumpled tissue paper onto grungeboard, using PVA, Golden Matte Medium and Gesso. I also added some salt while the gesso was still wet to add further texture. When it was dry more or less I painted it with a mix of Stewart Gill and Lumiere paints. Finally I added the Ginko leave which is made from Utee poured into a mould and then coloured with Perfect Pearls from Ranger. Finally I finished it by embellishing with some beads.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
