Hello, all my fellow CE fans! I’m back today with some wintery inspiration for you. This time I wanted to go a more unconventional route with color and the main idea. If you know me, you know my favorite color is purple. Last year, I had noticed that I never really used purple much in my art; so, I challenged myself to this year use it more. This is just one last challenge piece using purple. I’m not big on monochromatic work, but I told myself this was a challenge and I was going to see it all the way home. What do you guys think? Do you think I should stick with multi-colored pieces? LOL Either way, it was fun to challenge myself and go way outside my comfort zone. Plus, I had the excuse of using some beautifully designed chipboard pieces from the store to make it an amazing piece of art.
1. Begin by laying down a coat of texture paste to all sides of the canvas
2. While that dries, alter your Let it Snow and Snowflake Doily chipboard pieces using embossing powders
3. Pour some black resin pieces and alter them using some wax
4. After the texture paste is dry, color it using sprays
5. Splatter it with watered down white gesso
Hint: The splatters will turn to a lighter shade of purple
This enhances the appearance of separation from the background to the embellishments
6. I sprayed the entire surface with some clear finish
Hint: This protects the color and surface from any kind of water damage
Remember: These sprays are water-reactive
7. Now you can lay down all your elements beginning with the snowflake doily
8. Create your layers once that piece is down
9. After all your resin piece, chipboard, and flowers are down add some rhinestones
***Hint: The rhinestones add a nice finishing touch to the piece as a whole***
Here are some close-ups for you to enjoy!
Until next we meet again my friends. Have a wonderfully creative day.
