As you know, I have been enamoured with gold for a while....Let's take a journey through my gold rush obsession shall we?
|Finger-painting is my currently my fave way to paint...|
The project that sparked the gold rush.
This was a canvas I did for my bloggy friend Ujjwal back in January. I had just gotten some metallic Daler-Rowney paints and inherited some vintage trims from my mother's friend.
The gold monogram that used to be silver.
I had this tissue-papered silver spray-painted monogram sitting in the half-finished projects drawer. After taking and putting back the container of Golden gold mica flakes many times at the art supply store [it's $42!!!] over a few months, I finally added it to my arsenal of mediums. And this was the first project I did with it.
The mini bottle from a flight.
After the "investment", Golden gold mica flakes make their appearance on my mini altered bottle. Mostly to cover up the obvious line that separated the washi tape from the crepe paper...what a sparkling distraction, right?
The chipboard gets the gold treatment.
I just got my box of Blue Fern Studios chipboard plus pretty lace and cameo from Craftpon. The chipboard treatment took a long time, used many different layers of gold mediums and paint before the words were legible...*LOL*
The sparkly gold dress form.
I wanted to try a bold colour combination. The Golden gold mica flakes on the dress form really stood out against background with black embroidered blooms. This tag now lives in Woy Woy, Australia. :)
|The gold obsession continues..|
The mixed media card that was inspired by new gold mediums.
Visiting a scrapbook store in Hornsby with my bloggy friend Lizzy Hill led me to more gold mediums - Viva Inka Gold and Silks! I threw all my gold mediums on this card...can you tell? *LOL*
There you have it, a short journey through my gold rush obsession which I reckon will not end that soon..*winks*. Have you tried gold on your projects? It does photograph a lot better than silver...so get the gold out! :)
