"Midnight Blue" and some "Layering" .

Hello. Time for a catch up. Time seems to be whizzing by and I have two projects that I would love to share. The first is a little canvas where I've tried to channel Finnabair with her wonderful textured backgrounds and beautifully and creatively layered "junk"and metal elements......I have a long way to go ( just as well I'm taking one of her classes when she is here in Australia in November ), but it is so much fun to work in her style. Details of this project can be found HERE at Mixed Media Place.
My second project is an art journal page, created for Finnabair's Spread Your Wings Academy. Each month some of the Creative Team work on some simple tutorials showing a specific technique. This month it was "Layers" and I chose to show how you can create layers with "wet mediums". More details of this project with the step by step tutorial can be found HERE on Finnabair's blog.

"Midnight Blue"
The colour of this was achieved by firstly coating everything in black Gesso, then a coat of Silks Acrylic Glaze in "Boysenberry", touched up next with some Pink Mica Powder and lastly dry brushed with Inka Gold in "Silver"

"Everything Changes"
Art journal page working with layers of wet medium. Including art basics gesso both white and clear, waterproof ink, acrylic paint, Copic markers, art extravagance Texture Paste, art basics Modeling Paste, Distress Spray Stains, Izink pigment ink, Gelatos, waterproof black marker pen and Color Bloom Spray Mists.

All the materials used for these projects can be sourced from HERE at Mixed Media Place Store.

Thank you for visiting ! Have a fun and creative week.
