Another progress report on my mixed media journal for Rainy
So we’ve gone from here last week
I played around with the colors that much it wasn’t funny lol but when i was sort of happy with it
then its rubbed back with white spirits to reveal the colors underneath and some foil
Once it was wiped back I still played with the colors but all in all im generally happy with it
The bits that look like little white pieces are actually the foil coming through, in person it looks so much better and the foil showing makes it look pretty cool, I wish i could take a better photo so it would show up better, I really hope she likes it !!
Then of course I had to try another one, so this is the first parts of laying out something, still no design as I was just playing,
I also added folded up foil like a pleat and some fibre, then paint in greens and blues with a bit of white and yellow.
After the bitumen was rubbed back this one revealed so much more foil that it looks pretty cool, and I really like the colors . but which way is up lol ???
I know it doesn’t really matter right now. but i do want to make something with a purpose soon 🙂
This next one is for another very close friend ( Mary) to record her dreams and called Dream Time ( orginal hey ! ) I’ve added those colored stips to see what will happen when I use the paint, bitumen and spirits, i’ll do much brighter colors for our colorful Mary lol and i’d like to try to add some silk in with this one as well so we’ll see how it turns out. So far i’ve use foil ! tiny little bells, it might give a tinkle now and then lol, some foam and other beads and of course a key 🙂 i’ll try to add some silk over the butterfly.
So that’s my week, I really hope your all enjoying yours !!!
