But all for a good & hopefully creative reason :~)
September Counterfeit Kit Challenge #3: Make your own mixed-media embellishment
|Archi-Scraps challenge this month: Use texture paste.|
As I studied this photo a vague idea formed in my mind to use torn corrugated cardboard & glitter/beads
to capture that rich color in the walls & windows...so I gathered up a few things
I had tucked this photo of Kitty in my September CKC computer folder - perfect colors for my kit.
My page is titled "Kitty Daydream".
I wanted some circles to go above her head
and the watercolor paper should stand up to gesso.
I used three stencils to represent what a kitty might daydream about.
Butterflies, fish & birds lol! I used gesso with the stencils,
and added glitter to each while the gesso was still wet.
The butterflies needed no enhancement, but
the birds & the fish needed another layer of treatment.
The fish got a nice watercolor ocean to swim in, complete with tiny fishy bubbles!
The birds got some pen work to make them a little more interesting.
Then I added some dreamy ColorShine stars...
All that yummy leftover glitter!
