Did a little canvas tonight. Lots of blues in this one.
Layered the blues while wet in the background then added black and white accents with found objects. I also added some small doodle stars and hearts as well as a bit of journaling. Words of encouragement.
I’ll be taking this one to the Made Local Society store tomorrow and selling it in the shop. I know it’ll go to someone amazing.
Tonight I worked on an old art journal page that had leftover bits of paint and molding paste on it.
I used all my favourite, darker colours tonight. Dioxazine purple, phthalocyanine blue, turquoise, indigo and black. Tools used include my catalyst tool (love it!) and a fan brush to splatter paint.
Honestly, that doesn’t even begin to describe if. Maybe, oil slick, or nebula, or rain forest. Not sure yet which is why it’s beings defaulted to the green canvas.
Whatever I end up calling it doesn’t matter. What really matters is how frickin’ cool this turned out. Seriously. I am so proud of this one. I love the colours. I love the texture of the molding paste used. I love the way the colour seeped into the crevices and pooled and created such depth.
There are a bunch more pictures up on the 366 Days of Art post. Definitely check it out tonight.
I really like doodling like this.
The background was leftover paint from yesterday. I filled a blank page in my little journal with leftover black acrylic and then, with the white paint, created some fun patterns over it. And today, I used craft smart oil based pens to do the doodles.
Tim Holtz has the best sentiments.
Disclaimer: my desk has been a mess and that is part of the reason I’ve been working on my line drawings lately. I didn’t want to clean it up!
Tonight I sat down and did a mixed media journal page. It was so nice to get back to painting.
Today I finally used my big mixed media art journal.
I actually started today with a reorganization of all my paints. I bought some new supplies and wanted to put everything away first.
I did use the new supplies today. I used my new Dylusion acrylic paints to create the background (no picture, sorry) and then used 5 stencils to add more paint layers. Ended up looking like this.
Played around with layers of different mediums tonight.
- Golden soft gel medium
- Golden acrylic paints
- Liquitex professional gesso and acrylic paints
- Winsor & Newtob acrylic paint
- Dylusion ink sprays
I wanted to make today’s page a little different. I also wanted to play with texture and colours.
I started with a layer of crumpled up kraft paper stuck down with Golden matte medium and then added layers of Dylusion spray inks. I sprayed water to mix the colours and continued adding more layers of colour and water until I was satisfied.
- Dylusion spray inks
- Distress ink sprays
- Heidi Swapp colour shine spray
- Distress paint
- Silks acrylic glaze
- Golden matte medium
- Lace Ribbon
- Chipboard word
Spray inks are a lot of fun to use but they are super messy. I’ve managed to colour myself in all the pretty colours tonight!
Tonight’s page was done with a limited pallette.
- Liquitex basics titanium white
- Golden acrylic carbon black
- Winsor & Newton Galleria deep turquoise
- Pebeo studio cadmium yellow medium
