Isn't she the sweetest... Image and moths from magicmoonlight images :)
9,5x13 inch canvas board - I started this last night, I hate wating for things to dry but I was using modelling paste so I just had to be patient. this is what it looked like when I said goodnight :) just a canvas with some texturepaste,pearls and alcohol inked and crumpled metal tape.
 I used fine acrylic modelling paste for texture, I lay it down with the spatula to the right, on top of the border thingie next to it to get the pattern in the texture, I lay down some strips of metal tape and some half pearls.
 After it had all dried I started messing around with this stuff to add colour to the texture; lumiere 550 true gold, gold and black paint dabbers and wild honey distress stain, started by covering the texture with stains, then, gold paint, then black dabber, then white paint and gold dabber...

I Glued down my images put some more metal tape under the butterfly and messed it up and som dabbing at the bottom of the girl to blend her in. some black, brown, and yellow pastel pencils were used to define the image and around the images for some shadow, it was smoothed out with some more of that white paint. I used some glue varnish, much like mod podge to glue down the images and seal everything.

I'm really happy with the result of this textural experiment and I hope you like it and maybe get messy and try it out yourself :)
take care,
hugs and smiles,
