Artwork & Graphics Fairy Brag Monday

This weekend I was playing with some different layering techniques I thought up at work last week. 
Different crackle paint layers with corn starch and aging techniques. I also played with tissue paper drawing over an image from the Graphics Fairy.
This is the image from The Graphics Fairy
I also added antique gold antiquing wax to the edges. I love how it picks up the texture of the painting.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

I love it!!! This is so beautiful Thespa!! Your blog background and banner are gorgeous too!! What a great job you did!
If you stop by my Background Fairy blog, and click on the "Super Simple Tips" you can find a tutorial that shows how to change the blue Blogger navigation bar to clear. Of course if you like the blue, that's fine too! I just thought I would mention it, since I know a lot of people don't know you can change it.
Thanks so much for linking this up today. It's really wonderful!
