Creative Jumpstart Giveaway by Liquitex
I entered the Creative Jumpstart event this year at www.nathaliesstudio.com It is so much fun! I’m so glad I entered it! All of the videos are so inspirational and fun to watch. I’m really learning a lot.
Anyway, I’m entering one of my endeavors (two journal pages) in the Giveaway by Liquitex. I really love their products and hopefully can win some more. Below is my entry.
This is my second attempt with this method of laying the paints out on a palette and rolling them out with a brayer; and then I added all kinds of designs over the palette paper with various household items; a used paper towel tube, corregated paper, corregated cardboard from a box and a comb. Then I tore off the palette paper and layed it over my journal pages and printed it by rubbing over the back with the brayer. I love this technique and the interesting designs that come from it. Below is a closer look at the two pages.
When I painted the girl, I let some of the background show through. I was trying to capture a kind of dreamy look. I think I could have done it better, but there’s only so much time in a day! After I painted her hair and while the paint was still wet, I applied Liquitex Flexible Modeling Paste over her hair with a palette knife. Then I combed through it with the palette knife and the comb in order to mix some of the hair color in with it. I also used the modeling paste mixed with color to stamp some of the circles that the “dream” letters are in. I also used Liquitex white gesso behind the “dream” letters.
