(2020 c028) Hello Friend Mixed Media


I got my first Gel Press 5×7 from Hobby Lobby. I made several blue pieces using Canson XL 7×10 Mix Media Paper from Hobby Lobby.   For the stencil layers  today I used  Cas-ual Fridays Starlequin Stencil  and on the right top I used Dylusions by Ranger Triangles – Large Stencil  (Which appears to be discontinued, but you can see other stencils they carry)   See the photos below.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI used Art Extravagance  Crackle Paste Gold  for the center of the heart from   Wonky Wavy Stitched Hearts by Kat Scrappiness  that was colored with Barn Door Distress Inks by Ranger and Fired Brick Distress Stain Daubers by Tim Holtz ,  After the gold crackel was dry, I rubbed a Black Portfolio Series Water Soluble Oil Pastelinto the cracks and then wiped off the excess with a baby wipe.  The tiny hearts were rolled on with a tiny heart roller with the crackle paste and I used my fan brush to swipe random areas with a mixture of  black acrylic paint mixed with  a sparkly white to create a gray.   Sentiments:  HELLO die from Ellen Hutson and Friends from Hero Arts & Simon Says Stamp Stamptember SSS102093 Teal Flowers Vintage stamp colaboration set (This is no longer available, but you can see many great sets at SSS)
