YogiForTThereseM_Cover Cover for Therese M: I used Canson 90LB CP watercolor paper and the wonderful Acrylic background technique that  Nettonya let me know about. Detailed description of technique below.  I did my thermal embossing with gold embossing powder and my style of Kersal letters for my name. I only colored in the actual letter using Twinkles H2o's and left the background paper as the background for the lettering. I used Dr Martin's iridescent copper for the theme words and calligraphy. I outlined the page with a Krylon 18K gold leaf pen. 

Words: You will always find time to do things you really want to do.

See detail pics below.



Acrylic Background Technique: I did an all over wash with Delta Ceramcoat Yellow "D" (bright yellow)  acrylic paint. Edges with Bittersweet #2041, then with Navy Blue # 2089, both colors spritzed with some water. Another all over layer with Folkart Metallic Copper mixed with some water and rubbed with a sponge. When dry, Delta Ceramcoat Black Green #2116 spritzed with some water and then slightly rubbed and dabbed lightly when slightly dry  sprayed with Moon Glows - Moon Shadows Bucket O' Blood & Golden Doubloons, heavily applied in some areas.

PS some of the steps were repeated to give more contrast.
