Hidden wonders


Guess what!? I go again for a new challenge in winter colors… If you don’t know yet the monthly challenge on the Lyndy’s Stamp Gang store, here are the color challenge info.

I really like this challenge because it pushes me to try new colors… It helps me to explore myself! One more step now : I decided last month to show my work and participate for real! Time again to boost myself and taking my stuff.

Girl, spray, alcool, doodle, dentelle

Some explanations (just for the underlayers cause I forgot to take pictures…)

I’m starting with my first layer : this time I try the writing method which I add white (a Micki Wilde technic). I sketched my idea before so I’m doing my girl first (yes totally unusual for me)  and I add white to block her.

I add some texture now… I think I get definitly bored without it!

After that, I add birds with tranparent gel medium. Love this part of the paint.

It’s time to spray now : sea grass green, opal sea oats et cocklebells corail! The gesso texture appears… the colors are discreats so I add more layers. Love to see them mix together. There are colors I use a lot for the backrounds of my art journal but not together… next time I definitly Will! I add some cattail copper Brown : more attractive (I’m gonna used this color too for the dress and the umbrella)!

And then… I forget to take pictures… ooops! I’ve used diluted black and add some ribbing alcohol. I’ve protected the birds with petroleum jelly. For the girl : pastel and acrylique. On the dress and umbrella transfert of french tissue. Then, I’ve lot of fun with doodling some crearures of the underground.

Wonderful hidding of who don’t know to see
