One of my favorite challenge sites wanted us to use the bleaching technique. I don’t use bleach so I tried to use the removal of color from this Text Vellum piece with color burst on it with damp rag pressing through mandala stencil. Worked ok but does not show much in this photo. To add more contrast I added white gouache with a brush in some areas then smeared clear gesso to lock in the color and add a sheen. Added the Silhouette cut sentiment and a few sequins then mounted on white cs base.
Challenges I am sharing with
Tip: I have tons of rather large sequins is many colors but find I don’t use them much. They are usually just too large for my projects. I decided to see if I could trim them down. I placed them one at a time on purple tape and used a hand punch to reduce the size. Worked great. This card has star shape and much smaller sequins in a purple/pink. YEA, they may get used now.
