Expanding the Possibilities with Genea

Hello beautiful souls,

I'm excited to share my newest mixed-media piece with you. I am going to take you on a walk down memory lane to show the metamorphosis of the original design into the present.  I don't know about you, but I am always excited to always be improving on each design pushing things further and further and ever expanding the possibilities. I had the pleasure of spending a few days with one of my dear friends Eryn, while she was visiting from Colorado.

She asked me to create a piece for her using the throat chakra and remarked about how she really loved one of my 6x6 pieces I had done. I began the first design as a 4x6 with the heart chakra stencil and the flower of life stencil.

Next I designed this 6x6 canvas jumping up in size.

Later when the set of chakra 2 pocket stencils came out I thought it would be a great idea to add the heart chakra sanskrit symbol on the inside of the star.

I ended up doing this piece as a facebook live stream here if you are interested in watching the whole piece be created. To start out I used layers of watercolors, inks, and a white signo pen using the flower of life stencil.

Next I layered on some texture paste with the throat chakra stencil and made the texture bubble up by spot heating it with my heat gun. 

I just love making this texture with the modeling paste. In the past I had used some fluid acrylics, but I wanted to make the throat chakra blueish so I used inks and shimmer sprays to create some lovely layers and depth.

Just look at all of those delicious colors and textures! Yum! 

Here is the finished 6x6 canvas.

How do you like to expand your design when creating new pieces in a series?

Love, light, and creativity, 

xoxo Genea
