After creating whimsy girl postcards for the last month or so I was itching to do something different. I learned a lot from doing those post cards and I hope to be able to share that someday soon (maybe a video??) But for today I am sharing a piece I created for my 12x12 loose page file folder journal. The background was already collaged which just left me free to paint.
I always thought purple was hard to photograph but this Phthalo Turquoise proved equally difficult!
I can't wait to see what it looks like after it dries for a day or so and I give it a coat of varnish.
Daler Rowney FW Acrylic Ink (Waterfall Green)
Jacquard Lumiere Acrylic (Bright Gold)
Assorted collage and tissue papers as well as texture pastes that I doodled into while it was wet.
I also can't miss the opportunity to remind you about sign ups for the classes being offered at Community Thrive. My Soul Food class from 2014 is being offered for $35. I take you step by step through how I create a mixed media background, draw a whimsy girl face, collage with antique music papers, draw and paint angel wings, draw a whimsy bird AND how to make it look like it is an antique fresco painting. Some of the feedback I received after my 2014 workshop is that it made things "click". Here is what we will create together:
I would love to see you in class! Sign ups are open now =0)
