Numbers


All I can think of today is numbers............must be 'cos I am counting the days till the kids go back to school. I am SO bad LOL
This was fun to do though-the silvery stuff there is that metal tape from the hardware stuff-I think they use it for ducts or something. I used a tracing wheel (used in sewing) to texturize it a little, and a dry embossing tool as well. Its hard to see the layers of color on this page-I started with a layer of black gesso, and there are layers and layers of color of Caran D'ache crayons here. I couldn't make up my mind what color I wanted it to be.........but in the end I love how it turned out. I used Gesso to stencil the numbers
