gel transfers

I've got some background work done on another journal page. It was done using gel transferring. I'm learning but I kind of like the grungy kind of colour in the three corners. The other colour (which was applied over one of the yellow pages) is fluid acrylic. I like using the fluid acrylics here so that I don't have to worry about it lifting in the many subsequent layers. Lots of collaging, layering, painting, writing and touching up to do here. I wasn't going to post this but thought I should just to show I'm back in the saddle again. lol
Also been working on another Japanese gate - drawing and transferring to w/c paper.
Now, off to work, then home again and then checking out blogs to see what you've all been doing!!!

Deb, what do you mean with gel "transferring"? I need to learn all the techniques you're using for these pages! Also, why there's no the same risks with fluid acrylics than with normal ones? is it because they dry faster or what? aaaaah I need to know lol, sorry for pestering you with questions :)
