Timeless


This is the second of four cards made for the Try Something New swap mentioned in my Follies Review post, below.

Using the same background technique on all four cards, changing only the colors, I covered several torn pieces of paper from vintage books with a mix of turquoise acrylic paint and clear glaze for the background. Highlights are from two ink pads "dragged" in certain places: "Platinum Planet" Brilliance pigemtn ink and "Red Magic" Versamagic chalk ink, both by Tsukineko. The word "timeless" was typed on my computer and printed on a transparency. A clear glaze finish was added over the entire piece for added dimension.

I love the background and would like to know if you would explain the brayer technique?
