Hi everyone. It's gloomy and very cold here, and that means plenty of time to spend in the Studio with some Finnabair products.
This is a collage I made on a piece of ivory mat board.
I started with some Heavy White Gesso.
Then I cut out several shapes from the 6x6 Sunrise Sunset paper pad.
I stamped the medallion stamp on white paper and cut it into pieces. The pieces were added to the board with 3D Matte Gel.
I used Modeling Paste and the Bubbles Stencil to add some dimension.
Using a silicone tool, I added some more Heave White Gesso in spots.
Now comes the intense color. I used 3 colors of Golden High Flow Acrylics. These babies are REALLY full of pigment.
I dropped them into spots and sprayed with water to make them move.
Pens, Inks, and stamps come out to fill in the voids and make things pop.
I used the Notes, Lace Doily and Bubbles Clear Stamps with archival inks.
Black ink and Heavy Black Gesso create a great contrast. I could go on forever making little marks here and there....but I decided to stop.
I hope you're inspired to play.
Let me know if you have any questions or comments.
