Getting a Handle on...

the new scavenger hunt over at Artists in Blogland.

1. Take a photo that fits the theme
From Pinterest:
2. Make a new artwork
3. Blog Post I found that I liked:

4. How I made my project:

Die cut arches layered washi tape on one side and book pages on the other.

Paint thin layer of Gesso onto book page and then another thicker layer through a stencil.
Colour both sides with Gelatos and blend with your finger.

Thin layer of Malted Milk acrylic paint through stencil and wipe back a bit.

Stamping on washi tape with ink and black gesso.

Stamped the inside with Stampotique image and added black liquid pearls.
Metals Handles and hinges added. Plus made some Artemio labels for the quote.

I am entering this Gothic Arch Door into the following challenges:
