Here are some close ups.....
I did some paper layers using pieces of chipboard, corrugated paper, a doily in the layers....
I primed most of the chipboard with black gesso, then applied a thick coat of clear crackle on to some of the pieces, & once the crackle dried I dry brushed on some black gesso to remove the shine....I primed pieces of Rooster Row-BS with Clear Gesso, then glued it behind the retro frame.....I then used the retro frame to frame the Number Grid & Film strip, then glued on part of the title that I painted with white gesso & inked the edges with a black ink pad......
I altered the flowers with the DA Texture paste and with using Prills as the flower centers, I also glued Prills onto some areas of the chipboard pieces....
Here are a few more close ups....
On the frames I did some stencil work using the DA Cityscape Stencil & Texture Paste....
