#AASG30DAYCHALLENGE DAYS 7 & 8

My cat Zippa likes the canvas.
I have to try to remember what I did...1st I tried stenciling with modelling paste and the black wasn't waterproof so some of it came through. I didn't like the stenciling so after it dried I decided to go over the whole canvas with Gesso.
I applied it with a spatula and then did some mark making - circular shapes -  which allowed the gold to come through in places. I also did some lines with the side of the spatula which again allowed the previous layers to come through. I let that dry and tried some more stenciling which I liked this time. 
I mixed some rubbing alcohol with the last of my gold Acrylic ink and did some dripping and added some drops.

I had made a concoction of diluted PVA and Pink Glitter  so I decided to add that to the mix!!


THIS WAY?

OR THAT?



Who me??
Settled in!!

#AASG30daychallenge Days 4 & 5 & 6

DAY 4...I had a major blowout of gold paint from a tube while working on another project so I decided to spread it over my canvas and it was just the right  amount!!! Did the edges too.

DAY 5... Rubbed over the canvas with a Ranger Archival Ink Pad in Manganese Blue...that worked!!

DAY 6 ...Used Black Chalkboard spray ink through a Dina Wakeley stencil...that worked too although I was a bit worried!!



Where have all the flowers gone.....
