Colour My World by Fliss Goodwin


Hi there, this week I have an art panel to share as I just got my inky mitts on one of the lovely stamp sets by Darcy Wilkinson for PaperArtsy which I couldn’t resist and the colours I used were inspired by the new collection of one of my favourite clothing lines which featured lovely shades of pink and green.







Ingredients:


Ranger Archival Ink – Cactus Flower, Fern Green, Olive
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Acrylic Paints – Blush, Orchid, Rose, Zucchini, Sage, Toad Hall
Scrap of Thick Card


Recipe:


I applied the paint to the MDF panel this time with a brayer, layering the colours on and starting with the lightest pink and green, following up with the medium shades. It’s really just a go with the flow process as I know if I repeated it, it wouldn’t turn out exactly the same but I quite like that as it makes your creation unique.

The next step is to make the circle pattern on the panel as I was aiming for a sort of bokeh effect again. I cut a piece of thick card and die cut a couple of circles from it to make a homemade stencil. I then used this to make a circular pattern with the lightest pink and green paints.

I then used the bubbles stencil with the darkest pink and green paints to add more pattern to my panel, overlapping some of the large circles to add depth. I also added a few more larger circles with the green shade.

I stamped the flower on a scrap of deep pink paper from my Gelli print box using the olive ink and stamped the leafy vine on a green scrap. I drew a stalk on the green scrap and then fussy cut everything out. I stamped just the flower centre on green and cut this out too.

To assemble the panel, I stamped the text from the set on stamping card using the Cactus Flower and Fern Green inks and trimmed this to a panel. I then glued all the elements to my panel using some foam tape for the flower head, layering the images for added dimension.


Have a great weekend and see you next week.
