I had been using my open journal as a 'catch all' page for leftover paint and what-not and it occurred to me that I could use the mess as the beginnings of a mix-media wonderfulness! I threw a layer of gesso over the whole page and squirted some Magenta DecoArt Media mister on the wet mess....and then I added more water to the already wet 'wet-mess'.
It wasn't messy enough so I added Purple Media mister and sprayed water over that. I used my heat tool but some of the puddles were too puddly so I dabbed them up with a Starbucks napkin :)…….then I covered it all up with Decoart Media gesso...again.
I scraped some squiggles into the wet gesso...
The scraper tools are from DecoArt. You get several different kinds in a pack. I love them; a new take on the handy dandy credit card.
Banana Cream Americana acrylic is perfect for a base skin tone. I used Hi-lite flesh over that. Nothing complicated, just using the daubers.
After that a lil' bit of Sea Breeze for her dress. I then used the edge of the sponge with the hi-lite flesh to draw the arms and legs.
I hope you have fun with this project.
REMEMBER this is mix-media and sometimes unpredictable. Go with the flow and see what happens. Happy mistakes often happen and the yucky ones......cover 'em up with gesso and spray misters!!
