Dot to Dot challenge from Joan Mannix

I used a laundry powder box as the substrate. the beads were mixed into gesso to create a texture paste and spread on the cardboard.



While it was still wet I added random strips of material and adhered a smaller piece of cardboard on top. This piece was texturised with gesso & copper paint.


Next step was to use 3 colours of ink and add drips to the background and to also add decorated masking tape. The tape came from Jacqueline Miles in a swap.


Next is the textured object I used to stamp black ink and copper paint.


The focal point had to be 1 to 3 pieces of metal or wood. I embossed my metal pieces with an embossing folder and went over it with black ink and then gold embossing powder as the ink wouldn't dry.


Next was to add a quote from Shakespeare, ink around the edges of the whole piece and to finally splash coffee mix on the piece. This didn't show up but it smells really good!!





Looking at it now I might go over the embossing with black paint?? It does look better IRL though.

Here is a better photo of the metal piece

Love how this turned out Roz. It is amazing how the same prompts result in such different pieces. Your metal embossed embellishments are marvelous. I like them just as they are. Thanking you for doing the challenge.
