She gave ALL


This page is discussed here.  This is how I created it:

1) Scribbled a bit of "Metallic Blueberry" gelato on a craft sheet, thinned it with water using a water brush, and brush on to the page.  Colored it with a light coat - all except the verses I wanted to highlight.
2) I typed up the words on my computer, finding fonts that I wanted to use - then printed them.  Also, I printed a pile of coins I found on the internet.
3) Using my ultra thin light box, I traced these words & coins onto the page using a Staedtler triplus fineliner black marker/pen.
4) Next, I drew in my "two small coins".  I colored the small coins copper using Silks "Harvest Sol" acrylic glaze. 
5) I used "Gold Lame" Smooch ink to color the other coins, the words "ALL" and "shine lines" coming from the small copper coins.
