I have explored the art of stamping for a number of years. Recently I have been exploring social media as a way of exposing my ideas to a wider audience. I have a passion for colours, whether that's through inks, paints, pencils or pens. I like to include textures to my work to add depth.
A mixed media piece
Wednesday, 4 June 2014
I made this card using the following Fresco Finish chalk acrylic paints,
Moonlight, snowflake, pansy, eggplant, little black dress and crackle glaze,
Firstly i put the grunge paste through a memory box stencil then dried with a heat gun.
I then painted the entire surface with little black dress and eggplant paint.
I then put a layer of crackle glaze over the untexturized part, once dry I then painted the whole surface with a mixture of moonlight, pansy and snowflake.
I mixed a bit of snowflake with water in a mini mixer and sprayed, I then used glimmer mist sprays in
rum raisin, juniper and sea glass. I stamped the butterfly onto sprayed card in faded jeans distress ink and out lined the butterfly with crackle accents.
I then cut out the butterflies and fixed them to the board with hessian underneath I glued on some embellishments and mounted it onto a card.
