For someone who can be a bit of Scrooge around the holidays, I had a lot of fun creating these designs. I thought you might like to see the steps of my process.
1.Painted paper with gold & silver high flow acrylics.
2. Used my gel plate with acrylic paint and texture plates to add colors over the gold & silver paint. I chose red, green, purple, and turquoise.
3. Cut up the papers.
4. Made collages.
5. Laid out the text & graphics on the computer and placed the scanned papers and collages into the shapes.
6. Made repeating patterns from the graphics & design elements.
7. The finished products, available in my Zazzle Shop.
