It pink and Orange09:27
Hello everyone just a quick one today! Over on the Paper Artsy blog the challenge is the colours Orange and Pink. Now neither of these colours are my go to colours so this was a personal challenge as well. My good friend Hazel Agnew inspired me to get started as she was on a roll with her creations. I thought for a while what I wanted to do and decided to make a Masterboard which I will then cut up and use in my art.
Here's how I created it!
I used the colours Tikka and Rose Frescos Acrylic Paints, which are fabulous chalk finish and work so well in Mixed Media.
Once dry I added some infusions in Cerise and Lemon, spritzed some water and moved the colour around. I also added a little Pixie Dust to
Add some shimmer.
I used a stencil designed by JOFY and French Roast Fresco Acrylic and dried it with a heat gun. The second layer is Chalk Fresco Acrylic applied to create some shadows (bump technique) learnt from Leandra herself from Paper Artsy. On their blog there is a series of videos which show how to use all their products, which is fabulous as when I started my crafting journey I didn't have a clue lol.
Now I wouldn't call myself an expert at this technique but I'm happy with the effect I got, and I knew I was going to paint over it.
I used Dolly Mixture, Autum Fire and Candy Floss Fresco and a small filbert brush(my fave shape) to fill in the colours randomly over the sheet. Once dry I used Distress Crayons in similar colours to add shading and and light.
Here are a few close ups.
Where I went into the dark with my shaky hands, I added a dark brown pencil (inktense by Dewent) to bring back the shadow.
Once dry I cut it up into 6 pieces
You can see I've added some stamping too. I started to play with each individually here are my fav three.
I hope you have a go of getting out your comfort zone and try colours/ techniques you don't usually use!
I will post what I do with them next week,
Take care, hugs xxx
