I received the latest issue of Somerset Studio Sep/Oct 2011 today & wanted to share one of the articles with you - it is done by Michelle Ward (blog at michelleward.typepad.com). She shares some of her colouring techniques
- Row 1: painted red, painted black & turquoise, used as a mask with black acrylic paint on craft paper, mask with black turquoise spray paint
- Row 2: painted with acrylic, used as mask with turquoise paint on kraft paper, painted black & silver, covered with gesso then dry brushed with turquoise acrylic
- Row 3: plain white doily, dyed with coffee, small edge dyed with coffee, used as mask with white paint on craft paper
Her recipe for coffee stained doilies: brush doily carefully with instant coffee & let dry overnight.
I found these really interesting & hope you do as well
Currently working on some little books & these will be up on the blog this week
Bye for now
