Working in Metallics

Another book in the True Colors inspired collaborative has come through, and this time the theme color set was "metallics". I got to play with all my cool shiny stuff.This page has gold painted background, prismatic origami paper, magazine photos, holes punched in and thread with gold/black cord which hold a metallic tag that is inscribed with "This Is It, here and now" and a gold filigree ornament.
The facing page says"Abundance Flows!", it features gold painted background, colored pencil, watercolor pencil on paper, the Gundestrup Cauldron, some prismatic origami paper and two magazine images.
This page has gold painted background, copper stamping, an ArtChix photo, placed in a magazine ad picture of a picture frame, two other magazine photos and some glitter trails for the butterfly.
The facing page has these words stamped on watercolor crayoned paper: "Don't Panic! They told her. She couldn't Imagine that she could Be brave enough to see, see truth that she was able to create enough abundance for her self." The stamps are from ArtGirlz. There is also some gold paint, some copper stamping and glitter trapped between the page and the transparent overleaf that I mistakenly glued (gotta work with your mistakes, right?). Holes are punched through and black/gold cording are threaded through and knotted.

Very cool work...collage really allows you so much freedom. Your personality shines through in all the pages.
