I start coloring from the top layer down. Usually I would color at least the edges and perimeter of the image on all layers so that they are not so noticeable in the end project. I chose to leave these uncolored to show the technique more clearly and simply colored the edges. I used Zig Kurecolor # 731 Pale Beige and Chameleon BR5, BR2, YG3, GR2, GR4, OL3 YL2, YO2, BK4 and BL3
I glued the vintage papers to the canvas panel using a diluted mix of Mod Podge and water similar to the technique used when decoupaging paper napkins to projects.
I decided on the layout for the project and then inked all of the wooden embellishments using Craft Smart dye ink pads in black, light blue, green and brown. The canvas edges were inked using black and the gears and scrabble tiles in all 4 colors.
