Studio Time~Mark Making

I wanted to share my current exploration into mark making with collage elements. 

Those of you have been following me for awhile know I love mark making.  So for the past week I’ve been working with a new color pallet. Inspired by the monochromatic effects of the blush pink paints against the cream tones of the paper I love using. 

Enjoy❣

Gelliplate Layers- Video

Today I was working in the studio on layers…creating a rich depth of color and texture in my work…

One of my favorite tools for this, believe it or not is the Gelliplate…

I decided to create a short video to show you how I do it….

My biggest tip to create rich texture and color in 2-3 pulls is to begin with a dirty plate, (one in which you left old paint to dry from a previous session)…this is 50% of what makes this technique successful…

Enjoy❣

  
Much Love and Peace…
