Art Journal Prompts Week 27: Gold

Just as I caught up with the Art Journal Prompts for 2017 I have fallen behind again, due to leading a school visit to Berlin.  This is in response to last week's prompt 'Gold'; I am planning on completing this week's prompt before the next one appears!


I started with a piece of multi media card cut down to 19.5cm x 18.5cm and gave it several coats of Gold Treasure Gilding Polish by Cosmic Shimmer.
I then used the Explore Background stamp by Inky Doodles and stamped over the whole page with Coffee Archival ink.  The first stamp was not brilliant, but I was planning on covering that area of the page anyway.
Next, I die cut two of each of the Geared Up dies by Sheena Douglass out of Grunge Paper and laid them out on the page to get an idea of the layout.
Before gluing them to the page, I painted each of them with Raw Umber Reeves acrylic paint, then after drying rubbed them over with some of the Gold from Metallic Rub-ons Kit #1.
The next step was to add Metallic Gold Dreamweaver embossing paste through the Every Which Way mask by That Special Touch in three places.
Once dry, I emphasized the embossing by going over each of the embossed sections with Coffee Archival ink on a make up sponge.
That only left the quotes/sentiments; two from the Chit Chat sticker set and one from the Clippings sticker set both designed by Tim Holtz.
