Well. It has been interesting. After mixing up the various shades of Olive Green, I now looked at my paint stash for an ICY BLUE. Nothing fit the boll, so I grabbed some Dyna Blue, some white and some Iridescent medium. Not sure I really needed the medium, but I had it so I whacked some in.
I think that fits the bill. So then what? I had recently unearthed my wallpaper samples and the texture plates I made from them years ago. I had set myself a further challenge to only use these two colours with the addition of black and white to created various shades and then as a pop. I Allowed a final colour to add some drama. So I first did the icy blue over the olive with a swirly wallpaper like a stamp, then sponged on some lightened olive
Back to the wallpaper and a lighter blue, then more icy blue lines rolled on with that PlayDoh tool I use so often and darker olive with a PM Artists Studio stencil
It’s all looking not to bad, I think.
Time for a bit of drama, with black asemic writing stenciled on then white spatters.
I really kinda like that. But I wanted to do as in the video and add a really contrasting pop of colour. I thought of violet rather than red (I only have a few reds and two are transparent!) so I stamped that on. I am loving this foam stamp I made as the position of the circles lets me nestle them together fo a more overall design, if I am careful how I position the stamp.
So yeah, not bad really. I MIGHT have liked it better without the violet but I don’t hate the final outcome. I am scheduling this post but I’ll edit and update if I get any word of the transport of Son + Cat.
