Abstract ATCs - Step 2

Wow! That didn't take as long as I had anticipated so I completed the second step before lunch! 

STEP 2 - Creating Texture

First I got all my imprinting tools together -- a twisty plastic straw, plastic core of a roll of cellophane tape, a piece of plastic diamond grid and the end of a small paint brush.  Then I got out a foam brush and was ready to start the texture layer.

I painted on a rather thick layer of matte medium and then made texture marks. 

Here they are all covered and "drawn" on.  Difficult to see the under layer at this point but the matte medium SHOULD dry a bit more clear.....I hope!  Now for the long and patience-demanding DRYING period (certainly not my favorite part!) Fortunately, I have several other projects needing attention so they will provide the necessary distraction....well.....that's the plan at least!

Abstracts with matte medium - wet and waiting.....and waiting....and waiting......

Afraid we won't be seeing them again until tomorrow.  OH well, on to lunch!
