I selected all my materials, bottled it and went and ate a bowl of trifle.
Urged on by the wonderful Patwits I decided to go for it.(Seem to have this fail before you start mentality.)
I selected my colours. Safe ones but chosen as my theme was based upon fish skeleton stamps.
I found a canvas that I bought from Leandra and divided it into squares which matched up with my Paperartsy mini stamps. I then began to mix grunge paste with frescos and the alchemy began.
What I found was useful was that if I stamped into the paste and it wasn't right, I could smooth it over and start again. I continued building and then gave it a thin wash with Space Cadet.
I got really excited and hopeful when the amazing treasure gold made an appearance. It brought the whole thing to life and made me hopeful that I could do this.
After phoning a friend, or I should say tweeting the Patwits, I used Stazon to print Minis 100 and 101 skeleton fish onto acetate. then redial to find the right glue to attach them. ended up using Liquitex and they adhered well. Finally painted keys from Mystery Paperartsy box with Toad Hall, magic Treasure gold and felt that they completed the balance. Painted the sides of canvas also in squares and printed script and stamps with coffee archival ink. BINGO. Did it. Well pleased. WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY PATWIT FRIENDS> XX
