Imagine. Create. Enjoy.
This week I'm exploring a technique that is not new -- but new to me. I have heard of it for quite some time but I never tried it out. Let's just say -- once I gave it a go -- it unlocked a whole new world. I've been using it in so many different ways with my projects. Today, we are doing a matte medium transfer ... among other things. I hope you enjoy the video I prepared for you this week. :)
(One fantastic resource for ephemera - specifically vintage photographs is a EPHEMERA group on facebook! This is the one I belong to, and my source for the picture used today: https://www.facebook.com/groups/312456512291650/)
Today, let's find inspiration in color and chakras, shall we?
So, I found some masking fluid this week and I was so excited to use it on a project. I grabbed a piece of matboard and the Artistcellar Diamond Series and Sacred Geometry 2 stencils. I used a stiff brush to apply masking fluid over the stencils. Once the masking fluid was completely dry, I painted over the entire board with Dye-Na-Flow in "Midnight Blue" and "Turquoise". Then, I removed the masking fluid to reveal the white board underneath. It turned out so cool!
On separate pieces of cardstock I used a palette knife and black modeling paste through the Artistcellar chakra stencils and then cut them out, painted over them with their corresponding color in watercolor, and then added some gold Viva Decor Inka Gold around the edges for a little extra pop.
Next, I glued the cardstock chakras to my original matboard background and topped them with a gloss varnish because I want them to shine!
To finish it off, I added some dots to the background with Pearl-Pen in "Black" and "Ice White".
I just love how vibrant and bright the chakras are against a interesting and drippy background!
