Day 19!!!!!

DogsMom - No, but that's a good idea
Leigh - You got it!!!!!!

Hello and welcome! We had a busy weekend with our local town's Western Week (if you didn't know I'm from Texas by now, that's a dead giveaway). The background of this one, I'm going to have to try again, it kinda of looks like skin. I put gel medium on really thick, then added packing paper and then another layer of gel medium on top. When it was dry I added distress stain on top. The images were heat embossed on top of my 'junk' paper. When I paint and spray and play, I do it on top of paper, so I can reuse it later. The wicked one is from studio G and the dragonfly is the Angel Co.
Teresa has something awesome waiting for your eyeballs! Enjoy! Lisa

Firstly that background really looks like a body part with the skin ripped off - freakishly ghoulish!! Second, I just love that dragonfly and wish I could feel the texture of all those pretty patterns :)

Or, looks like CHICKEN (skin.)
Thanks for sharing your experimentations and interesting results with us.
I have stacks of various wrapping papers too good to discard. I'm going to try some of your techniques.

Wicked in a cute way - yes. Love the background, but it does look a bit like real skin - great effect for a more sinister project.
