After having so much fun with my tangible textures on canvas, I decided they would be great on these little laminate samples I had picked up in my Plum Bazaar haul. See them in the upper left of the photo below? I knew they would come in handy some day!
So, on the backside of these little laminate samples I had a blast digging through my junk jar and arranging little bits of treasures to be.
Then I added a coat of gesso and paint..
And added some shine with some old Treasure Gold I had picked up years ago at a garage sale. If you have some that has gotten dry like mine, add some turpentine with a dropper, close the lid and let them sit a day or two and they should be usable again. I also used a Derwent Inktense pencil in bark color with a wet paintbrush to add some shading around the elements.
And there they are finished, ready for some black cords!
I will be taking these pendants to Tessera Fine Art Gallery in Wichita, Kansas for their upcoming holiday boutique… and maybe wearing one myself if I can decide which one! I am kind of partial to this one with the baby doll shoe on it… Which is your favorite?
