Beryl influence 2.

Last night I had another look at Beryl's work and decided to play again.
I started by experimenting with gold embossing powder onto hessian and stamping into the third layer. Forgot to mention that I then added Treasure Gold.

I then stamped onto book page, coloured with crayons and mounted up on silk and hessian and added beads etc; made some little tags and wound threads round, stamped a long panel, fresco painted, coloured and screwed up and cut out another heat embossed piece. I then played about arranging them on a canvas.

I looked at them on various background papers and decided on the same Chatsworth paper that I used for my pink version on previous blog.
So I painted around the edges of my canvas and attached the Chatsworth paper with Claudia Hellmuth matte medium. 
Hardest bit was arranging and glueing my finished pieces.

I really enjoyed putting this together and trying some of Beryls multi media techniques. Long way to go but enjoying the ride!


  1. I think you have arrived - gorgeous

  2. Wow, Hazel - this is absolutely glorious! For starters, I love the gilded texture on the burlap - what an amazing technique - and then the composition of all your beautiful elements on the canvas is just great. Wonderful work!
