Hello Perfect Paint Fans, Lynne Forsythe here!
I had been looking at a Pinterest Board by Bloom Nation and was inspireed to
create my own Inspiration Board from their images!
The ideas began swirling around in my head and
I wanted to “try” them so I pulled out my Art Journal.
I pulled out some vintage McCall Magazines that my mom
had given me and tore a couple of pages out.
(I actually had a very hard time doing this.....felt wrong!)
I then applied Multi Medium to my art journal
and then adhered the vintage pages.
If you looked at my Inspiration Board you would see
ALOT of white and brick inspirational images.
To achieve that look, I applied a thick layer of
Gesso to my pages and let it dry!
To create the brick, I pulled out TCW stencil ~ Brick and
Perfect Paints ~ White Stucco
which I applied randomly until I achieved the desired look.
I then pulled out TCW stencil ~ Believe Script
and using the Groove Tool with the sponge attachment
I applied Perfect Paints ~ Shimmering Matte Acrylic ~ Shadow
randomly on my pages.
This is where I got LOST on my creative journey
hence there are no more step out photos......
To create the flowers, I used
TCW stencil ~ Daily Buzz.
I used several
Perfect Paints ~ Shimmering Matte Acrylics
layering on the the colors,
spritzing with water, when wet to create drips.
I created the flower centers using a sponge.
I finished off my flowers with stems created
using the TCW Daily Buzz stencil and
Perfect Paints ~ Shimmering Matte Acrylic ~ Moss Green.
They didn’t come out as “heavy” as I wanted them to be
so I applied more Moss Green with my palette knife.
Can I say how I love the depth you can achieve with
Perfect Paints Shimmering Matte Acrylic??!??!
I added shadow using Faber Castell Pitt Pen ~ Big Brush
and outlines with Faber Castell ~ Artist Pen.
I finished off my journal pages with one of
Yvonne Blair Designs/Impression Obsession stamps.
I stamped onto a piece of white tissue paper and
applied it to my page with Multi Medium.
Here are a couple of close ups.....
Hope you have enjoyed my creative discovery
now to try this on a larger scale!!
