A Rainbow of Colours



This is the first double page spread that I've ever done. I painted stripes of colours in yellow, red, blue, purple and orange media acrylic over a coat of gesso. Added modeling paste through a stencil, stamped some words onto tissue paper and stuck them on with matte medium, added random splodges of white crackle paint and made a black wash from the media misters. Added some drippage with the treasure chalky paint. Played around adding bits of colour until I was happy, then added white script stamping from a PA mini with everlasting chalky paint, covered with a layer of Andy Skinner mucky wash to tone down the white. Used the white posca pen to doddle and hi-light and finally went over some or the raised stencilled areas with turquoise metallic lustre.

All products are DecoArt.

PaperArtsy have a challenge this week of words, so I am entering my pages into this challenge.
