so when i came to a tutorial in the book - "Surface Treatment Workshop", explore 45 Mixed Media Techniques, by Darlene Olivia McElroy & Sandra Duran Wilson, queen of glue, & princess of paint for *faux encaustic* i gave it a try.
added more collage & the image of the child......pressed bubble wrap into wet gel medium to create some texture & interest.....when it had dried added some crayon & acrylic paint........more floral collage.....then more paint glazes.....
i used transparent colours mixed with clear painting medium to make glazes as i didn't want to lose the layers.
as it was an experiment i didn't stress about it, in the end it all kinda blended together.
