Envie


My lovely friend, Laura, came to visit this week and showed me this technique on a magazine page where you put PVA/gel medium over the image you want to keep then use Brasso to remove the background. I had a play with it on this piece and then used acrylic paint and stamping around my image. I was so pleased with it that I've made it into this envelope for the monthly mail art swap on my Yahoo group. Definitely going to been playing with this technique more!
