Back in my craft room again. this time the absence has largely been due to the extreme heat but thankfully things have finally cooled down.
I have been practising with acrylic paints using some of my A4 Gelli prints as a base and then adding even more paint and pattern.
As a whole the overall result did not look that appealing if I am honest, but there were sections that I did like. So I die cut a rectangular aperture and hovered over my painting until I found the part I wanted to frame. It's amazing how highlighting sections can look so different from the whole piece of art.
I managed to find 2 sections I liked, although the first one is my favourite.
I could have just as easily added a sentiment and made them into cards.
I even like this one in landscape...
I love the colours of magenta, black, gold and white. The fabulous flourish is by Indigo Blu. Even though I am creating abstract art I still like using my stamps to add texture and pattern.
Well, I hope it stays cool so that I can continue in my craft room. I still need much more practice with acrylic paint but I am loving it.
Stay cool wherever you are! See you soon x
