Hello lovelies and happy Tuesday! I hope you had a good start into the new week? Mine was nice, I´m slowly starting to feel better after my knee surgery – baby steps, but steps anyways! Yesterday marks 5 weeks in recovery and I am slowly getting better! Yay!!! I am not my old self yet, but I am slowly working myself back to mobility again. It was kinda hard for me to accept the fact, that it will take so much time and effort, honestly. And I know it´s not the end of the road yet, but I feel better than a few weeks back, so reason enough to celebrate little achievements. Thus this page:
I´ll also share some layers until the finished page – here is what I started with:
A layer of Mister Huey´s watercolors to start with (remember those by Studio Calico?). And then some stamping with Nuvo Hybrid Poppy Red stamp ink and the Rubber Dance Doodle Flowers stamp set.
Next some Finnabair Art Basics heavy gesso here and there.
After that some rub-on alphas, random pencil marks and fussy cut paper triangles for texture.
Next I took a palette knife and applied some acrylic paints with it very randomly onto the background. Then I draw along the color lines with Posca pens added a few rub-on animals and a Distress Oxide and Nuvo Embellishment Mousse painted die cut tag (by STAMPlorations) onto the page. Added sentiment onto that and started painting the rub-on animals with watercolour paint.
For fnishing touches I outlined the animals and the triangles with black Posca pen.
It´s a very bold page I created. I just went with what felt comfortable for me and apparently strong colors and bold is what I am going towards at the moment.
Have a great week, everyone!
