Ok so it just shows how important perseverance is as I nearly gave up on my little fairy after the base sketch and coat of paint. More soft pastel and acrylic paint mixing for this journal page. And below is a 10 minute little moleskine sketchbook painting.
Continuing my 24 Faces workshop by Mindy Lacefield.
Continuing my art journaling with Mindy Lacefield’s 24 Face course. Not following them religiously but using them as inspiration as it is nice to try something new and helps develop techniques to use when working in your own style. This is Flick...so called because of her hair.
Made this ATC book for a swap with a Think Pink theme. Used two stencils one inked with Picked Raspberry DIs and one using grey archival ink. I also did more stamping with Carribean Sea Fresco paints and some black ink too. The image is by Octopode Factory.
Over the past couple of weeks I have been using all I learned in the Kelly Rae Roberts course to create my own very large canvas to hang up in my bedroom. As I used oil paint bars for her face I needed to give more drying time between each layers. I was considering adding a quote but in the end decided she didn't need one.
Sad to have completed the Spirit Wings class by Kelly Rae Roberts. It pushed me to try some different mediums to colour the faces and also made me use collage which is something I didn't really like to use in my mixed media work. Upcycled an old canvas for this angel. I am planning to use what I have learned to create a large canvas....watch this space!
Although the summer holidays are well and truely over I am still sharing art work I created.
This angels face was created using Winsor Newton Oil bars which was a new medium for me but I liked how she turned out. On the page a halo seemed to appear around my truth angel and I found a very appropriate quote for the time of year.
The online course I am taking by Kelly Rae Roberts is really helping me to stay motivated with art journal. Really pleased with how my latest angel turned out and the colours I ended up using. Her face was created using gelatos.
Continuing some art journaling inspired by Kelly Rae Roberts Spirit Wings online course.
I have used Big brush pens for a long time but always on top of paint, so it was great to try something different on this face and blend them straight onto gel medium surface. I am really pleased with how she turned out and can't wait to get started on the next lesson.
managed to get back to some art journaling now on have a bit more time on my hands...thank goodness for the summer holidays! Taking a Kelly Rae Roberts course 'spirit wings' and worked with oil pastel on the face which is new for me.
