Hi you all, another week has sped by and it's time once again for Paint Party Friday, hosted, as always by Eva and Kristin. I am also linking to Simon Says Stamp and Show, where the theme this week is 'water'.
I started off by giving the pages a thin coat of gesso, and painting over with yellow, green and blue metallic paints while it was still wet. Then I sprayed with different shades of blue and green, used some drops of gold ink, let it dry a bit and then sprayed again. This is where the dripology part came into the game. When dry, some of the drips and runs were outlined with a gold gel-pen. I decided to let the umbrella man swim along, so used a die-cut waste as a template and painted him a greeny blue. Then he was outlined in gold. I did some background stamping using my much loved swirl and script stamps, leaves and also 2 ducks, which aren't usually found under water - can you see them lurking in the depths? The fish and the glass cloche were printed onto tissue (both from 'Free Vintage Images') and affixed with golden gel. The other creatures of the deep are vintage scraps. I doodled some sea-weed, and added some rub on butterflies, who are enjoying flying through the murky water with Mr Umbrella man.
I had great fun getting messy here, perhaps not quite so much fun cleaning it off the kitchen tiles afterwards....By the way, I forgot to tell in my post yesterday that I was a lucky winner again this week - I was picked for the top 5 at 'Try it on Tuesday', and won the prize for February, so have a 15$ voucher to spend at Really Reasonable Ribbon - that will be fun!
Have a good day you all, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
