The August Prima BAP sketch inspired me to use up my Almanac Collection "Composition" papers. The black in the paper called out to me to create something old world and elegantly Spanish looking. I don't why, I'm not Spanish. :) Fortunately for me, I had two pages of the same paper and was able to use one side as the background and the other side to create the fan and stamp the pretty Prima stamp on each of the fan pieces, and sew up some pieces to look tattered and old. I alternately embossed and stamped each fan piece. The background paper was treated with some gesso, stamp, the tea bag technique and some paint drops. I used the gesso on the stamp and heated the gesso up until it bubbled so that I'd achieve some texture to rub on gold "Rub N Buff". After that dried I threw a tea bag well saturated with water and some Lindy's Stamp Gang Moonshadow Mist over the gesso doily to give it an aged appearance. Thank you so much for stopping by.
