I'm so pleased that you've arrived at Terminal 3 with me today! Autumn from SewPaperPaint with you to guide you along with the contents of our travel bag yet again:
Product - any ink or acrylic paint
Technique - brayering
Color - pale blue
Substrate - book
I was in the mood to work with my new PaperArtsy stamp set, and with its hefty size I grabbed a Prima greyboard tag as my substrate, adding the layer of "book" in the pages I adhered with Mod Podge. I dipped my panel in Vintage Photo Distress Oxide to get an earthy base for my pale blues.
Next I brayered three similar blue hues onto my substrate, drying each layer lightly before adding the next. The moisture from the paint seemed to pull up the DOX and blend it into my layers - what an amazing effect! I toned things down a tad with a light brayering of white gesso.
I added some DecoArt texture sand paste through a dotty stencil and it also pulled up the DOX - I was thrilled!
I had recently won a giveaway from Shoregirl's Creations. She included these amazing molded caulk lace bits from her tutorial HERE. Do check it out, as these are flexible and dimensional - a must have for the mixed media artist! Thank you Esther! I inked up my butterfly panel with DI, and layered over a section of the silicone lace.
I stamped my sentiment on a leftover panel and did a wrap around on my tag. I added a gessoed flower from my tutorial HERE. Finally, I added a butterfly wing left over from the Mini Album I made for Creativation this year. You can find the details on that process HERE.
Our Creative Guide's have offered such amazing inspiration this May...
