New Transfer on Textured Background

Well....This did not turn out to be one of my favorites but.......it is fun to do something a bit different. This is actually a transfer over another transfer. The basic transfer was a photo shot from my upstairs deck directly into the sun. I was harassing my brother about living in Washington & never seeing sun. I shot the sun pic as a reminder for him of what the sun actually looks like. It was an odd but pretty nice picture. I played with it in photoshop tweaking the colors & effect a bit. I overlaid the mother & child directly into the sun itself. I did this on freezer paper that I did a little light background stamping on. Would you believe me if I told you I crinkled the paper before placing it on the canvas? Well, I can't lie! I had a heck of a time getting that freezer paper to stay down! I finally had to use stick glue & then polymer medium around the edges. The final touch...Golden Brand Metallic Gold Glaze. I love this stuff! Once I brushed that on every little wrinkle imaginable raised their ugly little heads! Once it dried I worked it & worked it to try & get it to lay flat. No luck! I guess you can't expect something to lay flat when it's placed on top of texture. After looking at it a while, it's starting to look a little better to me.
