Smile - A song

The subject for the smiles were 'Songs'. This took me hours to do - and I got really messy but it was fun - and much better in natural light.

Basically layer and layers of ink. Then the gold moon painted a few times and bubbled up to look like the moon surface - and to give it texture and depth.

Vintage couple - inked a number of times to get a depth of colour - but softer than paints.

Night sky - inked -painted with thinned mettalic dark blue to give it a sheen in cloud like formations. Rub and Buff antique gold rubbed over it.

Then horizontal cloud lines highlighted with an embossing pen and clear embossed.

The line of the paper is hardly noticeable in daylight - the photo flash has made it look prominent
