This was made just for Kimberly. Using Chinese fortunes are fun in artwork. I usually have them in my ATC's, however, this particular fortune told me it wanted to be in a collage piece for Kimberly. The second thing I searched for in my image stash from magazines was the right woman displaying the attitude I wanted for my fortune.
The support used is a canvas mat board with collaged scrap papers. I applied molding paste using a stencil for texture and sanded the paste lightly after it was dried. I then made a wash using Golden's translucent ochre paint to blend the papers for one cohesive color. White paint was added on top using my finger and then I applied the image. (I mounted the image onto black cardstock and trimmed making an outline of the image. I like doing this when the background is not smooth. It keeps your image crisp.)
Kimberly loves her collage gift......Message received!
