Hello bloggers! It's my turn to host the third challenge this month on the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge blog! Our theme is stencils and pastes.
Examples of paste include modeling paste, texture paste, embossing paste, super heavy gesso, gel mediums - basically any thick medium that will add dimension and texture to a project once applied through a favorite stencil. I chose light modeling paste.
I started with a 6x6 deep edge canvas and scraped modeling paste through a stencil with a palette knife.
I then added some paints from the Dina Wakley Media line. Dina's new heavy body acrylic paints are lovely to work with as well as her new brushes. I used Sky and White paints, keeping the shading lighter in the center and watering them down when needed.
I added some painted circles, lines and splotches to a few areas on the canvas to add color.
My focal point is a little birdie from Dina's Scribbly Birds stamp collection. I stamped the birdie on watercolor paper and painted her with Magenta, Lemon, Tangerine and White paint. She's perched on a piece of DCWV corrugated cardboard. I splattered Magenta paint onto the background before I attached the perched birdie! Here's the final project ...
