(Tutorial) Art journal - Colourarte Primary Elements pigments

Hello friends,

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!
Creative hugs,

Art journal illustration - Words & Paintery

Hello peeps,

Happy happy day today. Kids are back at school and finally found time to sit on my laptop and edit photos and videos.

The first piece I want to share is my DT inspiration as part of the Words & Paintery Team.  I love the reason behind this blog challenge and being a mixed media lover at heart, I really wanted to be part of this community and am very thankful to Marie Johansson for giving me this opportunity.

Considering how cold it has been here, I'm quite happy to be creating layouts about the beach and sunshine :) This journal entry started off with a collage on a piece of canvas, gesso on top and images from the Graphics Fairy. This site offers plenty plenty of free printables that you can use in your artwork.

Here is the challenge promt

you need to use both the inspiration words and the colours in the graphic.
The challenge starts mid month so you have until 15th of August to submit your entry.

Head over the Words and Paintery blog to see some mind blowing interpretation of the colours by the DT.

Thank you so much for visiting me today.

I hope you will drop by later this week to see the video that I'm editing today.

Seahorse Monoprinting using Primary elements and silks

Hello friends,

Kripa here sharing the outcome of my playdate with the GelPress, so much fun and so addictive!

Here are the supplies used:
NEW Vivid Ultra Metallics- Silver, Jade
Silks: Azurite, Autum leaf, Bolivian blue
Primary Elements: Autumn Skies, Indian copper, Teal Zircon, Violet pearl, China black

Monoprinting is one of the most relaxing and enjoyable forms of art Ive come across. You can never predict the final outcome and that element of surprise is part of the joy of pulling a print.

For a tutorial of how to make this head to the Colourarte blog.

Have a great weekend,
