Mixed Media book cover for my Art Journal

This week, StampARTic is inspiring you to use old game pieces. I have created a Mixed Media book cover with some round game pieces.

Some time ago, I took a workshop with Andy Skinner. I have thought about using some of the skills from the class to develop my own work. I also wanted to create a cover for my Art Journal. So I decided to use some of the techniques on a mixed media cover.

I used a white sheet of paper and created effects of the crater in the paper with Molding Paste. The idea for "netting" effect in the paper is from Andy Skinners class. I have used Triton Acrylic markers with a paintbrush, and dry painted the colours on the top of the texture effect. A lot of the metal has also been painted with Triton markes - just to test them out - and YES they are brilliant!  I love the idea of having good paint for Mixed Media in a marker. I also love the idea, that it is water soluble before it has dried, but waterproof when it has dried.

I am entering these challenges:
