Blue on Blue Challenge

This month's Challenge on the AB Yahoo group is all about colour and textures.

The Blue that came to my mind for this Challenge is the song ‘Blue on Blue’ by Bobby Vinton.
I printed the lyrics of the song and began collaging strips and scraps of papers and text onto the page with the lyrics, along with some serviettes pieces and washi tape.
The next step was the blue glaze over everything.
The chipboard letters were covered with gesso, then textured paint, then a thin layer of crackle paste, and more paint to show the cracks. I did some paint dribbles, and other dimensional paint scratches, giving more texture. The broken heart seemed fitting!
