I have a new technique tutorial that I prepared for Scraps of Darkness using the Color and Creativity Add-ons from their January kit, “Waterways.” Here is a shot of what results from the paint layering technique, the focus of the video tutorial.
I had stumbled upon a youtube video from a North Carolina based artist, Moni Hill (www.monihill.com) and was so thankful for the inspiration she generously provided to “youbers” for this project! Go check out her bold, geometric and captivating work! I was especially excited that with a bit more elbow grease and a bit less artistic strain, what was basically wood and paint could so easily transform into something that looked more like tile or travertine. Switch up your colors to suit your mood or the effect you are trying to create.
In addition to the paint layering, I did some drizzling and fingerpainting with these luxurious paints.
Folks, if you end up trying out some of the techniques I share with you, I’d be ever so thrilled if you posted them – process pix, results, questions, etc. on my facebook page (link on the right side of this blog)! Seeing the results of my efforts to inspire you would make me really really happy. I’d be equally thrilled to see how you reinterpret or expand upon what I share! A BIG THANK YOU as well for the comments you’ve been leaving me here and on youtube – they really motivate me to keep refining my video making skills and paving the road to new opportunities!
Our designers’ projects reveal today on their blogs, as well! So check them out – I’m looking forward to seeing how each of them spun their own unique projects with the tools in January’s kit.
