Bubbles & Fish

Hi everyone Dee here with a couple of altered beer mats. Looking at 
the photos it looks a bit dark but it actually is quite pale.
Firstly I put texture paste through a stencil when dry covered 
it in a coat of gesso or thick cream paint if you don't 
have gesso.
Next I used the paint in pale blue, green, pink violet & orange.
Spritz each colour as you apply it drying in-between. 
Once happy with the result stamp the random dots from the boarders plate 
& the 3 large circles from swirls splats and dots plate in black
 archival ink. Colour the dots on the small open dots images with a
white gel pen and the large circles use gesso to colour.
take a fine black pitt pen and scribble a zigzag line round the larger circles.
To finish the effect apply the Black Soot Distress Spray and
activate with water. 
Stamp the fish image from the sea side 1 plate on white card and cut in half.
use the glitter paste see below around the edges. Also use it through 
the circle stencil, along with crackle paste colour with
a silver wax.
Swipe the edges with silver once finished.
That's it for today folks I hope
you enjoyed it.
Cheers Dee x
