Zentangle white out art

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAStarted out with doing some Zentangle art .    then some white stenciling of different sizes of circles with  paint… and some red script stamped on the white paint. Using regular  ACRYLIC Paints.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANext I stamped a Rose with black paint and let it dry, then out lined it in White using a WHITE OUT PEN.. {LOVE THEM} cheaper then most art markers plus you can refill them… LOVE IT!     The step that I saw on the video was they blacked out all around the rose but I spent so much time on it that I decided to use white and incorporate it into the art.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Yup I like the way this ended up totally different  from what I wanted but loving it any ways………. now for my next art adventure………….. later……….. going to cut out some card stock paper to make  some faux chip board… for the next project…. later………….

Using water Color tubes in place of GELATOs

Wanted to play along online with some artist but I had not gotten my hands on Gelatos YET… LOL so went for the next best thing I have on hand….OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI bought these a while back at the Christmas tree for $2.99 good deal, LOVE THESE wonderful colors……….. First thing was doing a photo transfer on one of the double page journal.I spread my Gesso medium on the page not to thick, then put the photo I printed on my computer{ I use Kodak Printing paper for my photos}now I needed to burnish the photo down real well so there’s no air bubbles..

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI used my fingers then a bone folder to make sure. I had a few mishaps .. But redid it and let it dry over night.

Now spray the photo with water bottle so its good and wet, nor rub the layers of paper off. Keep wetting as you go The paper will roll up and reveal your photo, so pretty…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANext I chose red, yellow, and orange. added the colors with my fingers and smeared on the paper, then in water  and spread out till I liked the color strength..

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERALove playing in paints with my fingers.. If the colors to dark just use a wet paper towel and dab it it will lighten the color for you. spray more water and dab again if you want it even lighter.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERARepeat  with other colors you can even blend them in to each other.

next I added some texture I wanted it to dry fast… then I used more Gesso just a tiny bit smeared and took newspaper and made a print transfer with it same as the photo only take of while still wet.   And then used my stencils with some Gesso on my fingers.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANext step I cut three hearts out of gift wrap paper glued them down , then stamped butterflys all around the edges.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAthen highlighted the bee and butterfly with black ink and a stencil brush. Also added Dragon Flies and a lady bug with my stipple brush and stencil.

First I folded the mulberry paper in sections. then cut them into squares and then to random shaped circles , some I wet the edges and tore to give it a feathered look edge, then randomly used a pair of scissors and curled the edges of paper to look more like poppies.then used my awl,to poke a small hole in the flower and the paper petals.and cut some green circles of paper, and Crinkled the papers and wrinkled then opened back up.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAnow I assembled then with a dark brad. And it still looked plain so I fluffed the paper with the Awl, and then cut the black flower petal in to small strips so it would look like a poppy flower.arranged the petals and , finished them…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe small Black flower was cut on my Cricut  machine.
