If you've been following along this week, you know it's Day 5 of the
Ken Oliver Crafts - StencilGirl
Today, it's my turn to show you how I've combined
elements from both teams.
Here's my project:
I started with a burlap canvas
Ken Oliver Crafts Color Burst
Stencil Pressed Flowers onto the canvas with white gesso
Added my favorite Color Burst colors to a palette.
Color Burst is a very fine powder that can be mixed with
water, gesso, embossing paste and a myriad of other things.
What's nice about that?
You can mix colors and not *water down* the gesso or embossing paste.
I mixed with water.
Less water = stronger colors.
More water = transparent colors.
Then started to lay in colors to create shadows and highlights.
I worked with a fairly dry brush as I wanted intense colors.
Blended until I got this:
Next up, the fossil.
This time I used a sponge dipped in water and then into
the Color Burst colors.
I used a piece of watercolor paper
and dabbed color onto the fossil stencil.
The sponge was barely wet.
Then cut around the fish.
Using more Color Burst, Ken Oliver's Click-It Ink Pads
and a stipple brush, I added more color to the fish
as well as around the edges of the paper.
When I was satisfied with the color,
I sprayed the fish with GooseBumps Clear Texture Spray.
The fish was raised up on the canvas to create more dimension.
