I layered torn strips of a book page on the base and then gesso'ed randomly over the top of that. Next came Distress inks in a couple of shades of blue.
I colored the compass with watercolor pencils and alcohol markers and then applied a crackle glaze to make it feel old and vintagey.
'Explore' was created with black embossing paste through a stencil. I also added a torn bit of an old nautical chart.
I wish I'd had more time to participate in more of the ITAC challenges, but September is a busy time of year. Check out what the guest artists created for this challenge HERE.
Thanks for stopping by!
