The page above has a lot going on. I don't normally use a lot of pink but I think this was a challenge for pink. I see scrapbook papers, smooshed paint, stencils, and once again...dots! Lots of LAYERS!
More color in this one...orange and green. This one has stencils and stamps. And guess what...the stamp is a dot design!! Do you see a theme here? Am I getting dotty??!
Now this one was a failed attempt! I cut large strips of solid color magazine pages and glued them to my pages. Then I added a stencil using white paint. Didn't like it so I smeared it out a bit and still didn't like it. But seeing it here in a small snippet like this, I like it! It's a beginning. Maybe it needs a few more LAYERS!
More strips of magazine pages...love doing this. You can get a wonderful LAYER of pattern and color and it's inexpensive. I put a light wash of gesso over the strips and they look worn and aged. LOVE that look!!
Do you have favorite things that always show up in your art? How do you add texture and layers? Or do you like something without all the layers?
