I took an inexpensive 8½ x 11 inch document frame from Wal-Mart. I selected this frame becuase it had a fillet that was about half an inch deep, so it had a built in shadowbox space. I have a wonderful good quality set of Italian Maimeri Venezia watercolors which I purchased from Marina Lenzano of Cherry Pie Art Stamps. I also purchased from her the wonderful metallic powders made to mix with them. All the coloring and shimmer you see was done this way. I watercolored the mat, torn pieces from the program, and some beautiful images that I stamped on heavyweight textured watercolor paper. I added emphasis here and there with a white gel pen.
