The first stamp I used is called Shiva, you can read a bit more about Shiva further in my post.
Gessoed journal page then covered with vintage papers
Painted washed colors on page using
DecoArt modeling paste with pearlescent Duo Green-gold powder from Jaquard
Next I made a glaze with DecoArt Media~Transparent Yellow Iron Oxide& Interference Turquoise.
From here I continued applying and wiping off color till I was please with my results.
Here, I stamped out several Shivas onto tissue paper using different colors to audition which one worked best.
Then I added the stamped Shiva with wax(doubling the image)
using a faux resin technique~thank you Patty Szymkowicz!
Shiva ( Sanskrit: Śiva, meaning "The Auspicious One"), also known as Mahadeva ("Great God"), is a popular Hindu deity. Shiva is regarded as one of the primary forms of God and also the ruler or king of gods. He is the Supreme God within Shaivism, one of the three most influential denominations in contemporary Hinduism. He is one of the five primary forms of God in the Smarta tradition, and "the Destroyer" or "the Transformer among the Trimurti, the Hindu Trinity of the primary aspects of the divine.
At the highest level, Shiva is regarded limitless, transcendent, unchanging and formless.Shiva also has many benevolent and fearsome forms. In benevolent aspects, he is depicted as an omniscient Yogi who lives an ascetic life on Mount Kailash, as well as a householder with wife Parvati and his two children, Ganesha and Kartikeya and in fierce aspects, he is often depicted slaying demons. Shiva is also regarded as the patron god of yoga and arts.
I also used wax to adhere this quote by Rumi
and then added Lindy's~GeraniumCoral Blush embossing powder to areas of the page.
Thank you so much for stopping and I hope to see you again soon-
