I have a mixed media canvas today using some lovely stamps from Lavinia along with left overs from a gel printing session.
I’ve combined acrylic paint and ink; Stabilo pastel pencils; gel and sparkle pens ; black ink and distress oxide ink. – a real mixture!
The result looks quite stylised and reminds me of a tapestry!
I used the following stamps:
Here is how it was done .
I began with an interesting scrap where I had cleaned my gelli plate using a piece of white card. It had gold, green, purple and bronze acrylic paint which I thought would be a shame to waste!
I created a moon using a home made stencil, white gesso and gold and purple acrylic paint.
I often stamp with paint but remember to clean the stamp quickly!
Next the flower stamping in grey for placement purposes:
Colour using red acrylic ink.
Add background colour using pastel pencils.
Re-stamp the flower detail using black versa fine.
Add some foliage and some highlights to the flowers.
Finally mount on to gold and complimentary card and place on mount board.
It was an interesting result. I hope you like it!
Till next time my lovelies!
