Day 8- #90daysofblogging

TGI Friday..

Announcements first.. my blog post will be available on the Helmar blog some time today by clicking here.  Should be available sometime after 9am EST in most cases..

In the mean time, here is a sneak peak..
at my artistic process..

I took this corrugated board piece from Michaels and added book papers to I used Helmar's Decoupage paste to adhere book papers and the other half was Deco Art's Acrylic Gesso.  Then I colored using some Neocolor IIs.

I covered more than half the letter with neo IIs..   Took a wet brush and washed the color a little.  Painted the base of the letters with Deco Art's Multisurface Satin Black Tie.  I also sprayed my project with 1:1 Water to Ultra Matte Varnish to kina help act like a workable fixative for the water soluble crayons. I know i wanted to possible be able to stamp  and doodle on top of the letters.  I edged my letters with my Faber Castell, black gelato.   Once that was done, I decided to try my hand at someflower clustering.I adhered an assortment of flowers to the letters with Helmar\s Craft and Hobby PVA.  I actually clustered flowers.  I know I can do better.. but this was fine for this was fine for this sign.  Let me show you one of my clusters.  ::smiles::

  Well that's enough for now.. I need you to go to the Helmar blog and see it.. and leave me a NICE comment so I know you came by.. :)  I do appreciate YOU and YOUR TIME!!
