Miranda Lambert

Hi everyone! Melissa here with my entry for the 7 Dots August Challenge: Favorite Artist.
Country Music star Miranda Lambert performs music that make me want to drop everything, listen, and sing along to.  You wouldn't want to hear me, but that's ok. Her voice is beautiful and moving.
I have used paper from the Writer's Block collection for the background.

I covered the paper with matt medium, put some gesso on, followed by texture paste through a stencil.I sprayed the page with Tattered Angels over Walnut Stain, and other distress inks. I dyed the lace and cheesecloth with inks.I put cardboard under the photo, then put the lace and other embellies around it. I used Prima Finnabair Art Alchemy Paints in Steampunk Copper, Dragon's Eye, and Fairy Wings on the chipboard, and on different spots on the page.

To add more visual interest I added mica flakes, pearls, bling, metal glitter, seed beads, micro beads, dried moss, sequins, and metal.

I treated the chipboard with gesso, then topped it with paint and Clear Rock Candy Crackle Paint.

The sticker is by 7 Dots. 

I brushed on more paint on the lace.

Thank you so much for looking, and have a great week!
