Art Supplies used:

Golden Soft Gel (Matte) medium
magazine picture
Zig Writer markers in brown and black
Liquitex Inks
Perfect Pearls pigment
Brush assortment

This is my very first soft gel transfer. I used a magazine ad and put the gel on the ad the way Milliande explained to do for a "grunge" look. It came wonderfully distressed looking, blending on the journal paper beautifully.

I drew the tree in brown marker and the other details around her in the tree and then painted in all the details over her and around her Liquitex inks. For the areas around the tree, I drew in the outlines in light pencil and then started painting in each section using the inks, with and without Perfect pearls for added color. For fun, I added in perfect pearls to some of the colors as a second layer to play with color tones, and other spots I just painted with water and pearls powder. I went back and added in black detailing where I felt it was needed.

When I got it all done, I found the shimmers made it hard to photograph. Scanning just didn't work at all. The paper looks rippled in the photo, but it really isn't. I loved how this came out. Looking forward to working with the gel medium even more!
