Layers

Back again, with another challenge from 7 Dots! This one is all about "Crazy Layering." And I went nuts with strips of paper that I embossed and used die-cuts on, as well as adding layers and layers of art mediums including bead gel, molding paste, and gesso.

Once again, I used two sheets of the same paper to acheive my monochromatic look.  I used "Night's Fever" from the Dreamer Collection here, using Tim Holtz die-cuts, and embossing folders to change the look of each strip. I then smeared gesso and bead gel across the tops of each altered piece, building texture and dimension!
Here are some close-ups!
I may not have used any Shimmerz paints on this layout, but I truly felt that the white-ness of the molding paste and gesso just looked incredible this time with the bead gel and white cheesecloth that I added.
