some fun with ColourArte

 Hi everyone, thanks for joining me.... today I like to share a couple of projects I created using some fabulous ColourArte products... 

First up I have a layout to share: Phuket

Products used:

Here's the process:
  cover white cardstock with clear gesso and then apply modelling paste through a stencil and dry

 select your colours of twinkling H2O's and activate them with water then apply in the general area of your stencilling.

 paint your title with the activated H2O's

 add some random stamping around your H2O colours

diecut some feathers from white cardstock and paint up with the same twinkling H2O's.

 add some random line sketching with a fine marker, for added interest and to help make the the vivid colours pop right off your page.

next start to build up your photo layers, I used some white corrugated card, mini doily, green dotted paper, gauze and some bubble diecuts, along with our coloured feathers... 

 add some random mini beads for a finishing touch...

Next up I have a canvas to share...

Products used: 

Now onto the process:
 I began by applying paper scraps onto the canvas using gel medium.

next I started painting on my Silks acrylic glazes in the warm colours...

and then I added the cool colours.... 

 next I randomly stencilled on some gesso...
I almost stopped the project here as I really liked the abstract feel of the canvas... 

  but I decided to keep going.... I designed out my image using gesso...  don't be put off if you feel that you can't draw as you can use graphite paper to transfer a photo copied image... and then paint it out...

 finally I added in some black and white detail to finish him off... 

thanks for stopping by,
happy creating,
