Hello everyone and Happy Tuesday!
I hope that you are having a nice beginning to the new year. Have you made any resolutions? This year I have vowed to spend more time coloring. I love coloring, taking classes, watching/reading tutorials, etc. I hope to be able to fulfill this resolution!
I’m Audrey from the DT sharing some inspiration with you today. I have chosen the awesome digital stamp,Fable and the Snow Pirate, this month for my inspiration post. This stunning image can be found in the Faery Ink Shop and is perfect for many types of creations – winter and friendship to name a couple. As always, Amanda’s images from Faery Ink Shop are super fun to color – always so many options and often great scenery included in the image.
I always try to come up with something unique for my monthly creations here at Faery Ink. This month, I have made a mixed media project. I used a 12 x 12 canvas from an art supply shop as the base of my project. I chose Bo Bunny papers, which I ripped into various sizes and shapes and then daubed the edges with various inks – Distress, Memento and Versafine. I then glued them down on top of the white canvas using glossy Mod Podge. I made the frame around the mosaic as well as the sides of the frame using Simple Stories Snap Basics Wood paper.
I added a number of sentiments from various clear stamps – Penny Black, Stampendous, Kaisercraft and Jaded Blossom – stamped with Versafine inks, dried with my heat gun and then ripped and Mod Podged on top of the mosaic design. I added a piece of silver vellum behind the image, the vellum and the image are cut out with Tattered Lace dies. To the top right corner, I added an assortment of flowers from I Am Roses and to the bottom, various sprays and glass leaves.
Here is a closer view of the image. I used Copics, 1 Shinhan marker and Atyou Spicas for the image. For the background I used E42, E41 and E40 going from darkest closest to the image to lighter the further out from the image I went. I then added a pattern by dropping dots of Copic Colorless Blender solution from my water brush.
