I have been chosen by ClearPrint Vellum to do a project in their traveling Journal that will be a new experience. The project will be posted on their facebook page. So I am waiting for that to arrive.
My Mixed Media paint came for my Canvas Blogs for using the products for DecoArt. Really getting excited to start that I will be using the Stampendous Stamps I won, I received a gift card and I am using the new Andy Skinner Steampunk stamps.
What has just came off the Work Table this Week.
I was working on a new mixed media canvas and it is called
Step 1. I Gessoed the canvas and then I decoupaged a old torn page from a old German dictionary, and used a piece of Charcoal to draw in the face outline.
Step 2: I used a paper mask to cover the area I did not want my background colors to get onto it. I then used orange, turquoise, and yellow on the back ground with American acrylic paints and brushed on and used a baby wipe to put the first layer of paint on. Dried.
Step 3: I used my lindys sprays and the splatter to do the background for texture there is a gold sparkle in the spray and it does not show up on the picture but has a bring sparkle in the sunlight.
Stage 4: I then added the features of the face and based coated them in that is the picture below.
Step5: I used flesh acrylic paint and turquoise for the eyes and red for the lips and warm white for the highlight and lamp black for the hair.
Step 6: the finishing of the canvas, I deepen the face with a charcoal stick and did some more coloring and finishing the edges of the sides of canvas. This was the first face I have done on my own drawing and painting.
The journey awakens the soul.
Just contemplating on my next journey.
