PaperArtsy Challenge Topic 9 'words'

Hello everyone and welcome to here.
Over on the PaperArtsy challenge blog topic 9 'words' this fortnight and wonderful video, samples are here.
I used topic 'words' to background by my new HP1304.
I made the background first, I painted Irish Cream, Dusty Teal, Chocolate Pudding and Nougat Fresco onto the 6 x 6 chipboard. When it dried I stamped HP1304 wonderful French script by Chocolate Pudding Fresco. Then I used TWC Rebekah Meier stencil with Wisteria Fresco and some water. It dried I used MN18 by Aquamarine Archival and white gesso.
2nd. I made the coins that I stamped the HP1304 on the paper clay. Then I painted white gesso, Chocolate Pudding and Florentine Treasure Gold. I printed old Greece Pottery art and cut the Chatsworth paper. I used Prima Texture paste Graphite on to the senter of the background and put on the papers. Also I glued the coins and painted TH Arabesque.
Finally I used the burlap paper to lowest layer.
Also it became plane colours work....

Thank you so much for stopping by and good see you.
