Mixed media card by Dorota Dołęga

Recently I'm making mostly layouts and art journal pages, but this time I've decided to try a smaller form. This simple card is made on recycled paper from an old book, which I whitewashed with a thin layer of gesso, so the letters are still visible. I've used all kinds of 13arts media: two shades of paints (I really love them!), chalk lilac mist and some of the new pastel line - pastel berry and lavender.

At some spots I've put some gel medium and put some micro glass beads in two sizes into it - they are perfect for creating an interesting textures:

I really love the colour palette of Ayeeda paints! I've mixed them with the new liquid acrylic medium to make splashes - the effect is really cool, it looks like a half-matte enamel.
