Hello everyone, I'm so excited to be sharing my post this week because I got to play with the new Dinky stencils and white/grey board from That's Crafty!
This is what I did.
I printed some images from an online class I'm doing by Ivy Newport to use on my board and stuck them in place using a Soft Matte Medium, I also got some from Deviant Art. Once they were dry I added some paint to tie them in.
I used the stencils to add visual texture to the background. It also adds a more abstract feel. I wanted more texture so painted on some Crackle Paint randomly over the board.
Below you can see I've added more ephemera and paint, continuing to build layers and texture. It was getting dark when this picture was taken, which changed the colours to look more blue.
Using a black water soluble pencil I added shadows and refined some form. I added a person siting too, as I wanted to convey someone contemplating…
