I'm on the Colourarte blog today with a step by step to make this art journal page using primary elements pigments, silks and radiant gels.
I love the shimmer that all the colourarte products have. Not overly shiny for a grungy project like the one Ive made but shiny enough to make the teal look like a tiny jewels.
This project was an eye opener for me on so many levels. I love texture in all my projects and was so blown away with what can be achieved with paints and mediums - no 3d elements. For a long time I wanted to add one of Finns rusted wheels in the centre, add glass beads and glitter and what not! I really liked this idea too, but eventually settled for an embossed butterfly.
Learn to live another day I suppose :)
Thank you for visiting me today!
