Day 90- #90daysofblogging (DecoArt)
Love how this page came out.. adding my quote was a final decision. I used white sharpie that was water-based then i outlined the lettering for pop. I really love this page, this face.. these colors.
I took some Deco Art Acrylics in various colors and put some color on the page. Then I took a pencil and did a lose face.
Then I took the Media line titanium white and muted some of the bright colors of the face. Usuaully the white is used to accent/highlight areas. I just like the look. I had no real reason to do it.. just responding to my intuition.
Then I took my stabilo all pencil in blue and traced the face and a few details. Took a wet brush and activated the pencil to give that painterly look.
Then I layered my acrylics with some Caran D'Ache Neocolor2s, which are water soluble crayons.
Adding even more here in complementary colors..
Activating and moving the color with a little bit of matte medium. Love how that stops the color from moving as much, once it's dry.
I also love how the colors are not opaque and that the colors peak through the layers.
Added more colors to the face and details and a few highlights.
If you have noticed I finally finished publishing my 90 days of blogging. I got to the last 5-7 days and just totally found myself, not typing..or wanting to type. Anyway, it's finally done! Thank you for coming along on this ride with me!!
