What a fun time I have had working on this collage. In fact, I cannot wait to start another! This all began with one of the blank canvas boards I painted last week when I was in a funk and couldn't think of anything to make. I'm now down to only one canvas from everything I painted, so I guess painting structures to challenge myself is working. Today's post about this collage is informative but there are so many variations, from color to stamps, that I hope you take this as more of a jumping off point for your own work.
I also painted a wash of Picket Fence paint over the Tumbled Glass paint.
Please beware, the velum is quick to bubble over glue. I've done this technique twice, once it was perfect and this time I went to dig in the drawer to find my brayer (novice move on my part). When I came back, I had a bubble down the center. 90% of bubbles dry completely flat in 24 hours, but because I walked away from it I got a permanent bubble. With that said, have your clean brayer out and ready to go before gluing. If you don't have a brayer, I'd suggest a big heavy book or two. Lest you think a bubble will stop me, it will not.
*Walnut Stain Distress Crayon was eventually added to match the top of the canvas.
So you know I couldn't leave the candy colors as they are right?
1. The first layer is Walnut Stain Distress Crayon. Scribble it on and use a damp paintbrush to move it around.
3. Walnut Stain Crayon was scribbled on the glass mat and picked up with the water brush and added to the right side to give the appearance that the dot is now a sphere.
*I will add more color and dimension once I finish the rest of the piece.
1. I still had lots of Distress Crayon colors scribbled on the palette of my Glass Media Mat. I used a paintbrush to pick up some crayon and dry brush over each circle. You can see that Aged Mahogany was used over the Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers circles to add a contrast of color. This is where working on a canvas surface is cool because the texture/weave of the canvas helps keep the contrasting color on top.
2. Use a Stabilo pencil to doodle and add pencil lines.
I hope you can glean some inspiration from todays project. I'm grateful for the extra time to be creating more and sharing more!Now carry on,
