Color me positive Jounal 52 week 11

Color me positive I kinda did my own thing. the alternative prompt was use an animal.

Journal 52 was imaginary creatures. I used stamps from VLVS! they were perfect for this prompt

your a mermaid

Here is my project I did for the March Virtual art crawl ##CACFantasyArt on YouTube. I LOVE how this turned out! I wasn't going to participate in this months art crawl, as I'm not into faeries and such, and had no clue what to do. Then I remembered that I had some of the Julie Nutting mermaids that a friend stamped for me(I don't have that stamp....yet). And I had just gotten a sentiment from VLVS! that I got just for that stamp. So I deiced to play. To see the video of me making the postcard go to my youtube channel.

I used part of a mailer from a casino as my base of the postcard. Okay its not really a postcard. it bigger than a postcard. I used Deco Art mixed media white gesso. I then used Folk Art Patina craft paint and pool blue by Craft Smart. After it dried I crumpled up and then glued tissue paper on top with Blick's matte medium. I used some Liquitex glass bead gel. Lot of texture going on.

After all the gel dried I sprayed Mr Huey's Cash money and Powder blue and Deco Art media white shimmer spray. and a little water to help the sprays move a bit. It too some time to dry. and I find the Mr. Huey sprats a little tacky when its wet and even when its somewhat dry. when its completely dry its not tacky anymore.When it was dried I used some Inka Gold in gold all over the post card. I used a travel screwdriver to get the paste out of the jar. I had a shell necklace from when I was a kid that broke, but kept the it to use in art. I glued that to the postcard with Aleen's tacky. 

I colored the skin of the mermaid with Prima markers in the light skin tone. The rest I used Inktense pencils. I later used Artist loft pearlesnt watercolors and painted her tail, bust and hair, just to give it some shimmer. I also use Glitz glitter glue in Mermaid and confetti in different areas of the postcard. Also use the confetti for her headband. I used foam tape to put her on the card. I did have to use glue on that,as the stick on the foam tape wasn't sticking that well. I stamped the sentiment from VLVS! on white cardstock with black Versafine ink pad. and again I used foam tape on that as well.

Color me positive Journal 52 week

Week 9 for Color me positive I used the Quote : "Everything you want is on the other side of fear"  I did another collage.

For Journal 52 the prompt was the Heart knows. I tried to do a crackel background. I first painted the page black. After it dried I used some Elmer's school glue and aleene's tacky. On top I put pink craft paint. Then I hea set it to start out with then let it air dry. It didn't really crack like I wanted to. I color a heart from the color book "color Love. ct the heart out and glued it to the corner of the page. Then I didn't know where to go after that so it sits.
