Here is the 2nd painting I created using inspiration from Mystele's online Gut Art class I am taking. This paint evolved from a green & blue patchy background that I slapped on without much thought, then I painted over completely and used baby wipes through a stencil. Added various layers of paint on top of that and then used gelli plate papers to create these whimsical flowers. I tried experimenting with different shapes that I am drawn to in other artist works and ended up really liking the eye shaped leaves with the different patterns on top of the gelli paper. Overall I am very pleased with the way this turned out. I enjoy starting paintings with nothing in mind and letting the canvas speak to me as I created.
Use your hot glue gun to make a pattern on a not stick surface. Make sure the edges of the glue pattern touch so it will be in one connected piece. When it is dry and cooled, carefully peel it from the non-stick surface. This is your new stencil. I laid it on paper and sprayed it with Dylusions ink from Dyan Reevley. You can make any pattern you want. So fun!!! Marla
I finally have been working on some things once again. Funny how life gets in the way of art sometimes. I love the new mini distress ink pads that Tim Holtz and Ranger have released this year so I decided to participate in the June tag. You can check out the process on Tim Holtz's blog http://timholtz.com/12-tags-of-2014-june/. I used Tim's crocodile stencil #22 to apply the watercolor background then using a blending tool added Wild Honey distress ink on top. The other variation that I used was the little boy on this TH stamp was solid black so I painted the inside space with white gesso then proceeded to paint the image with the water brush with distress ink. Hope you enjoy and be sure to check out Tim's blog because his work is truly amazing!
