Painted Paper Towels


This weeks challenge on the PID yahoo group is painted paper towels and this paper towel is the one I made the print from for the background of my previous post. I used Lumiere paint pearl magenta, citrine, and brass to paint the paper towel. The collage image (PID) was torn out and the edges painted with pearl magenta. The next layer is a torn piece of white cardstock and the edges painted with Lumiere pearl emerald. The light post (Tim Holtz) was stamped with Archival Ink jet black. The paper towel is adhered to a burgundy colored cardstock that was stamped with a music sheet image (Tim Holtz) in two corners. The top right corner of the cardstock is painted emerald on the back and after it was dry was rolled forward. Brads and and gold ribbon added. Everything attached to a folded base of white cardstock, edges sponged with Distress Ink shabby shutters.
