Cool, Crisp, Spooky!!!!
This months theme for Art Journal Journey is Deep in The Forest.......
How great a theme for the fall....
everyone has such different such great idea, heres mine......
Still living & learning!
I saw this on another blog, stamping your stencils...
I thought I would give it a try.....
Didn't work so great!
Have you ever done this? What am I doing wrong?
I still wanted that shape so I hand painted it in,
there was enough for e to see...
Used acrylic glaze with the paint for the background,
I didn't want to lose that roundish shape!!
Added trees....looking up....
Neded something in the trees so I added pencil for texture....
Also added some gelatos (dry) to get more depth of color.....
Now the words...Who Doesn't love Poe!!!!!
Oh great forest picture, looking upward, and I loved to see the progression as you made it. I like the way you have include the quote too. You are right, everyone has such different ideas and yours is another super one.ReplyDelete
I like the background flowers on your blog too.
What a fab fab page!
I don't know if my tip is helpful for stamping with stencils... when I do it I take tweezers to lay down my painted or sprayed stencil down with the colored side-- brayer over it and carefully in one big fast movement take it off with the tweezers again.....
but I think it's more a playing than an exact stamping method for sure ..but it is always a surprise what we get ...
Thank you once again for a great entry to our AJJ Challenge!
Thank you for the advice, I will try it that way. I had trouble with the paint drying fast, and i was trying to work fast...should I have done something to the stencil first?Delete
Stunning work of artReplyDelete
Don't know if this will help but I take the paper to the stencil rather than the other way about - a tiny spritz of water may help too
I absolutely adore your creativity. It was magical to see the process behind the finished painting. It is absolutely wonderful!ReplyDelete
wow I love this, such a fab angle. Happy PPF, Annette xReplyDelete
Oh, I absolutely love it!ReplyDelete
Fantastic, the end result is really stunning! ValerieReplyDelete
Love your page, a bit spooky looking up through the trees. I agree with Crafty Creations suggestion about stamping with stencils. I find using a Ranger Mini Mister gives a light spray that revives any paint that has started drying without making it too wet.ReplyDelete
I will have to try that, yes the paint seemed to dry so fast, that may be where I went wrong! Live & Learn!!!Delete
I saw that video too, going to try it. I like what you did with it. I think it's hard to get a deep impression on thin lines, but your spiral had a nice monoprint quality to it. xoxReplyDelete
Gorgeous...I love the depth your process projects! Love it!ReplyDelete
A great colorful tree-picturej- I love you chosen point of view!ReplyDelete
