I‘m loving my new class with Emily Falconbridge at BPS. Our homework for the first week of class was a variety of techniques we applied to a 6×6 sized art journal. I lifted my cover right from Emily’s art journal. It’s super easy & a cool technique. glue tissue paper on chipboard & gesso. With title in place & gesso dry, apply acrylic paint. Viola! the acrylic finish is a matte gray, the sheen in the picture is not there irl. I wanted to get my pictures shot before getting dinner going so paint still had some wetter spots. I’m excited to be in this class, ‘cuz I think it will open a totally new horizon for me, but the funniest thing is that none of it is really foreign to me. It’s things I know in concept or could have discovered by trial & error, but I need a class like this to formalize it & give me the push to do it. Anyway I’m totally motivated and inspired. Here is my homework for the week:
Besides learning that this is totally fun & doable, I also learned I need more brushes and acrylic paint in the yellow/orange and tourquoise/aqua families. guess where I’m going tomorrow?
Oh, mj. I LOVE it all!!! I’m so jealous. I hope they offer the class again. It just wasn’t do-able for me this time around.
Are these canvas, or paper?
Looks lovely. Keep up the great work!! 🙂
