I framed the photo with the waste from the chains, that I primed with white gesso, then stamped it with Gabi's texture stamp. Then I glued on the chains & industrial chains. I also primed them with the white gesso, then rubbed on some black ink using the ink pad.....I glued the framed photo onto the burlap & wrapped the twine around & the anchor.....
I did some paper layers, with ripping & inking the edges & used black corrugated paper in the layers...I also did lots of chipboard layers using assorted travel pieces...
With using lots of chipboard pieces I did a few different treatments on the chipboard, some pieces were primed with black gesso & left black, some were primed with white gesso, then stamped with a black ink pad & embossed with clear embossing powder & some pieces I primed with clear gesso....
