Not so Mellow Yellow

I just LOVE how glass bead medium looks when you catch it with flash photography.  For this card I started by smearing and pressing yellow acrylic onto the card and, as usual, getting some wonderful texture.  Once dry I colored on it with wax crayons in black, white, and blue-green.  I added some watery gesso to it and then wiped it with a paper towel.  It didn’t have much impact.  Then I added the glass bead medium and waited for it to dry.  Lastly I added some blue and orange watercolor.  It’s bright, beautiful and full of texture.  Click on it to get the full effect! 🙂
