Cafe du Fleur

This is a spread done using a technique called Napkin painting. I used Perfect Paper Adhesive, and I first saw them demoed at the Creative Festival in Toronto, by Susan Pickering Rothamel of USArtquest. Her samples were just awesome, very artistic.
My rendition is below. I began with a paper towel that I used to wipe my paint brushes on; when it was completely covered with a multitude of paint colours, I glued it to my book. Then I continued with the fun part - glueing on bits and pieces of napkins. I used four different napkins for this piece.
I completed the spread by using rub-ons - 'Cafe du Fleur' onto an organza ribbon, and glueing that to trail the centre of the spread.

This spread is for the ABCanada Yahoo Group, the July Bird Mingle. The bird ATC on the left page was made by Pauline.
The left page is a printed transparency over a page I painted and stamped.
The right page is the same painted background, with a colorful image of tropical birds, framed with gold pen.
