I started this little mixed media with Hazel and Ruby Grey Polka Tissue Paper, adhered to the X-Press It Canvas with TripleTac. A mixture of Texture Paste and Paint is then strategically placed using plastic stencils:
Let drops of Clear Gel Glue semi-dry, and brush Silver Leaf across their surface, for little raised bumped of silver loveliness:
Strips of Silver Leaf are added to the skirt pieces with X-Press It 3mm Double Sided Tape, the tape takes a bold impression of the Silver Leaf, a totally different finish to that achieved with the Clear Gel Glue:
The dress form on this piece has an extra little piece of Hazel & Ruby Tissue Paper adhered with TripleTac Glue. I added a touch of red paint to white Gesso to give the chipboard a bit of colour, prior to adhering the tissue atop, this gave the text on the tissue more definition as it would be muted if adhereing direct to grey chipboard:
I have also taken bolder statements of Silver Leaf to the background, this was achieved with X-Press It Double Sided Adhesive Sheets, cutting these makes for even application of the adhesive:
Silver is the best finishing touch, and it is made super easy to apply with X-Press It adhesives, use what you have in your stash and give this great product a go, you won't be disappointed with the pep it puts in your step!

I am sure I will be finding little slivers of Silver Leaf around my house for some time to come, but that's half the fun of it all.... Enjoy!
