Compendium of Curosities Vol. 3 Challenge Week No. 6
This is my altered burlap panel for CC3C #6 based on page 39 of Tim's book which is sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique. I have been playing with a lot of texture in my journals using joint compound and chose to try a couple of techniques on my burlap panel. My background has the joint compound pressed through a stencil (one is a bubble layering stencil by Tim Holtz and the other is a Crafter's Worshop Balzer Bits stencil) which was colored with both Distress Paint and Stain once it was dry, and I also used joint compound on muslin strips to create the dress skirt for my embellished vintage image of the beautiful Lily Elsie. I let the edges of the skirt drape over the end of the canvas - I'm not sure if I should leave it that way or cut it off level with the edge of the panel. What do you think?
Here are a couple of close-ups of the texture. I highlighted the high spots with Old Silver Inka Gold rub - it gives a cool luminance to it.
