Water Travel
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.
