Well, the technique called for phone book pages. I used a classified ad from the newspaper instead. It's adhered to cardstock with gel medium then brayered on, so there are no bubbles or wrinkles (this works GREAT for the thin paper). Then I used tiny bits of three different acrylic paints mixed with gloss medium to finish the look. The doberman ad was perfect to go with the sweet little photo of my first baby blue Dobe, B.J. Because of her, I am forever in love with the breed.
