Today I am entering Andy Skinner's challenge on his blog using DecoArt products.
Andy's theme for his first challenge is:
BOLD & BRIGHT
First coated my journal page in Gesso.
While still wet,spritzed Yellow,then Magenta and lightly misted each with water.
Next I used a hair dryer to gently push the sprays out while drying them.
After these were dry,I used the white Modeling paste through a stencil in various areas.
Once the modeling paste was dry,I stamped using Carbon Black Fluid acrylic around my page,then dried with the heat tool.
When dry,sprayed Shimmer Mister White about the page and again more Magenta.No water this time.
After drying these colors,out came the turquoise Shimmer Mister. I got up close and personal with the turquoise,because I just love this color and wanted it for my primary focal point.
While puddled and still wet,I used my credit card to drag through the Turquoise created extending lines.
After this was dried the heat tool,I sprayed again, this time with water and tilted the page to let the Turquoise run a bit.
After locating where my words would go,used my finger dipped in Carbon Black to make a smudged circle,for my wording.
When all paints were dry,I used Liquid Glass to accent some of the stamped circles as well as the wording.
After the Liquid Glass was dry,painted around the word again using Carbon black.Also,drybrushed a bit of the black over some of the modeling paste.
At this point,I had black leftover so,after watering it down I brushed it over the edges of the page and then wiped back off.This made the black show as a gray in small areas of where there was no gesso on the page.My final step was to use the Cobalt Teal Hue Fluid Acrylic with my finger,smudged gently over the modeling paste.
