O.K. one more ATC

This background was done by collaging papers, then I used ink pads to color the papers. I used a red glaze that I mixed from acrylic paint and clear glaze. (I purchased the glaze in clear and antique brown from Home Depot, and I use these often. If I want an antique look, then I use the brown.) The clear glaze can be mixed with any acrylic and a little goes a very long way. I think I may have used a teaspoon full of the glaze to a drop or two of acrylic paint! It can also be used to layer the papers, like Mod Podge, without the shine!
