"Les Papillons" - Pages 4-7

Hi, Everyone,

Today we are continuing to look at more pages from my latest art book, "Les Papillon".

The diamonds and hollyhocks are paint through stencils.  Again I added butterflies to the pages by doing a gel medium transfer.  On the bodies of the butterflies are metal embellishments attached with heavy gel medium.  There are so many metal embellishments available at Treasured Memories starting at only $0.50 so how could I not use metal!

The script is my own handwriting using a fine tipped plastic bottle containing a mixture of 2/3 fluid medium and 1/3 black paint.  Treasured Memories is getting these bottles in very soon.  I see them flying off the shelf because they are so fun to use in your artwork.

My next post will show you the last few pages of the book and describe the top three finishing layers of the book.

Have fun creating!

    1. Thank you. I love how the glazing medium mixed with paint gives that antiqued look.
