Week One- My Color Is Beautiful Art.. with Tiare

So excited to begin My Color is Beautiful Arts online course over at scrapsofcolor.ning .  It's not to late to register here  on Tiare's Blog! 

I began by grabbing a few of my faves.. from Deco Art! Liquitex Matte Medium is a new one for me.  While I appreciate Deco Art's Media line Matte Medium, it's hard for me to keep in stock!  (It's good stuff!! :)  so is the gesso!!)

I began with my Strathmore Mixed Media Papers (400 series has a vellum finish that I love!!) 
Gesso, Tim Holtz Tissue Paper and Neon paint in Blue.


Then as directed I brayered on a few more colors. 
loving how this background looks all rustic.

I have to create a face now.. thing is with me.. I kinda like the idea I got from Betty over at Mystic Tulip   This idea stuck with me.  I use it MOST often with my faces, as I create.
that tip is to use the colors already in your background when you create your main item of focus..   So I tend to never pull out a brown paint when I want to paint a brown person. I use the colors already in front of me and created that brown.  I hadn't added yellow, so I did a few splatters and booyah.. I was good.

Then I painted my face, it was ok that it was transparent.. I like that.. I like my background texture showing through it!!

Then I just went town building my angel and got give her a crown full of purple powers of goodness.. It's her halo.  I think I liked that part more than anything. Gave her a shirt with more purple personality and a few Tiare scribbles..  and I was done.. 

Thank you for coming by and checking out my #divaangel. :)
