Late but finally got a card made for Janelle's Positively You MIXed media challenge. I took the poem Ars Poetica, and the two positive words it gave me were climb and true. I think this is a card I'll probably send someone - climbing is referenced in the sentiment, and while originally I thought of adding TRUE as a sentiment, in the end I opted for using the page from my dictionary that featured TRUE as the base layer - and it can be seen if you look closely.
I started with a gel print, and with a small rectangular media plate, added a square of white gesso. I tried stamping my mountains on this, but they were too faint so I drew them in with gelatos and sprayed with fixative before adding the sentiment, which is embossed with clear EP. I distressed the edges of this piece, and edged the white part with a Posca pen. For the base, I took my dictionary page and added gesso, then used drywall mesh and gold paint to stencil round the edges a bit, and a spatter from Gorgeous Grunge.
