Here is a page I did for a book in the sketchbook club I belong to. The theme was Water Travel. I searched for days for a boat image. I finally found this little gem in some Asian ephemera I had snagged at Snagging Stampers.
The pages of this book are paint chips. The name of the paint chip I used is called "Hidden Spring." I really think the image I found kind of goes along with that title.
It is difficult to see in this scan, but there is a gold shimmer all over the boat image. I just "discovered" that using some thinned gold acrylic paint makes a great glaze over an image like this. Just enough sparkle...not too harsh.
