Geometric Ice by Amanda Pink


Hi Everyone

Welcome to my weekly dose of creativity!

Today I have an art panel to share with you that I created using some of Seth Apters Izink Ice by Aladine with AAll and Creates Geometric grid stencil designed by Olga Heldwein. In keeping with the geometric design the focal feature is made up of some of my favourite shapes: Circles.

I think this Art Panel would also make a great notebook cover with its cool, comtemporary design.

I cut a panel of card to the same size as the stencil ( 6x6), placed the stencil on the card and applied a couple of colours of Izink Ice through the stencil with a palette knife. As Izink Ice is translucent I didn't spread it out too thinly as I wanted a good intensity of colour. The colours blend seamlessly  and application of the medium through the stencil is effortless.

After I removed the stencil I dried the 'Ice' with a heat gun holding the gun quite close which makes the 'Ice' blister and craze. Great to watch and you can actually hear the crazing too . 

I went round the stenciled geometric shapes with a black fineliner pen and did some mark making in the white open spaces. 

Although happy with the 6x6 panel I decided to cut it in half for my art panel and adhered it to a panel of That's Crafty! White/Greyboard to give it more rigidity. 

I wanted to continue the geometric design onto the larger of the circles (a That's Crafty ATcoin) that made up the focal feature. I also wanted the stencilled design on the Atcoin to align with the stencilled design on the background so I created another panel identical to the first.  When dry I positioned the ATcoin where I wanted it to sit on the background, cut that area out of the 2nd stenciled panel and adhered it to the coin. 

I framed the stenciled covered Atcoin with a black die cut ring. 

The rest of the focal feature was made up of a number of parts: (from the bottom to the top) 
- a painted faux stitched wood chip 
- a faux stitched white die cut ring, 
- a painted That's Crafty! Bits and Pieces greyboard 'bar' (from the large cogs sheet)
- a painted tiny circle (popped out of the greyboard bar) 
and finally a purple gem bead.
