Christmas has been and gone and just like that we are in holiday mode..
I was reminded of my favourite photo from last summer so I decided to share.
I'm really loving the simplicity of the Colour artist Inks.
There is so much you can use them for and they are extremely easy to use.
The effects in the brush stoke has to be one of my favourite things.
To get started I'm working with
Colour Artist Ink in Berry using a brush roughly 1/2 an inch wide
I ran strokes horizontal on my page in a sweeping motion.
I continued this technique till I had completed my desired pattern.
I then added a second colour with Marine.
I diluted this in sections by dipping my brush in water.
Using Colour Paste in Snow White
I ran it through a bubbles stencil randomly around my page to create a translucent effect.
I cut my little people out of the photo image and began to embellish.
Using a gel pen and short lines a created a border reminding me of branches.
But still felt something was missing.
So I also added some gel pen circles.
I have kept them rough preferring a rustic look.
I love how it works with the Snow White bubbles and the strokes of colour.
And there you have it!
So simple but effective! A great example of how mixed media can still be restrained
whilst also a lot of fun!
