watercolor paper cut to 4inx5.25in then mounted it onto an A2 white card.
stencils that you don't mind getting gesso on, I was in a triangle type of mood that night so I went with that... I used some triangle background stencils from the Silhouette Design Store that I cut out on cardstock
Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor, I used pink and orange
Kuretake Stary Colors
a mop brush (mine was 12)
This is a very addictive way to paint, so keep that in mind when you start... I could have been doing this for hours!
For the Triangle cards:
You will want to stencil gesso on onto the stencil with a pallet knife. Remove the extra gesso from the stencil and separate the stencil from the paper and then let the gesso dry over night!
Then wake up run to your studio, and look to see if it's dry, and start the watercolor process, I used a red gold starry color to add to the pink and orange Kuretake Gansia Tambi watercolor set that really worked well, I love how the metallics mix with the watercolor, it's like watching paint dance on your pallet.
I used a juicy brush with lots of pigments, and then went in to lift up some of the watercolors from the raised part of the gesso to give it some definition and extra texture.
Then once the watercolor paper is dry again, I mount it onto a card base I have already made, 4.25inx5.5in, folded.
Yao Cheng from Creativebug. I added just water to create some texture and added some bolder colors to the painting, it was just whatever I thought in the moment was a good idea to do I did, it felt free and expressive for me to work this way!.
Then I just mounted the cards to a card base, I did stamp Relax on one of the cards for something different.
This was a simple and beautiful outcome, I didn't want to hide the color, so I used very minimum supplies.
I would love to know what kind of analogous colors are your go too, for me it seems that green and yellow are always favored, or blue and greens.
|I also thought of using blues for this one, but I love the oranges and pink with the triangles!|
|can't you just see this card going to someone that loves horses?|
|decorative tape adds just the perfect element to this card.|
