Hello and Happy New Year's Eve! Today, I am up on the Frog Dog Studio blog with my first project for January. The kit(s) this month are full of home inspired themes. Here's a peek at the kit(s) available this month.
I used bits and pieces from both kits to create my first project, 'Home Sweet Home'.
When I first started out on my creative venture, I wasn't sure where or what I was going to create, so I just let it flow and let the color and ink take me! :)
Using Super Heavy Gesso, stencil the village and sun to a 12x12 bare chipboard sheet.
Also add texture with the Gesso to the bottom of the page.
Apply liberally to areas in the sky to represent clouds.
Add more texture to bottom of page, using Molding Mats.
Prepare Ink 'colorwash'. Add a few drops of Acrylic Ink to container filled with water. A couple of drops for a pale wash, and more for a more intense color.
Paint 'colorwash' to chipboard sheet in areas of blue.
You can also mix colors of acrylic ink to create new colors. I had yellow in my personal stash, so I added a couple of drops to the blue to make green for the grass.
I wanted to add some 'color' to my houses, so I poured some of the Smooch into the Ink Palette (from the Limited Edition kit) and painted it on the page.
I also painted the sun with the yellow acrylic ink from my stash, and let it drip down.
I wanted more texture to my clouds, so I applied the Croco Blue (from the Limited Edition kit) to my clouds and let dry.
This is where the fun starts! :)
Start doodling, with Montana markers, Uniball Signo white pen, and Sakura Gelly Pens to create a funky and fun background.
I really love all the detail and texture that is created by the doodling. Unique and totally me!
I hope you enjoyed by project tutorial today! Have a wonderful week!
