Get Artsy

I couple of weeks ago I signed up for a class at Big Picture Classes called Get Artsy, a mixed media class with Mou Saha, each week we cover a different technique using a different medium.  Mou has some great ideas and I love her style.

The first week we used gesso, the technique was to paint a thin layer of gesso over the page, the scribble over with gelatos, dry blend with a make up sponge then lay a stencil over.  Using a baby wipe over the stencil takes the colour off which leaves a great background.

The second week we used soft Gel Medium as a resist, I drew a title very lightly then painted over with gel medium, I also used a cat stencil.  When the gel is dry watercolours are painted over then wiped away, the gel forms the resist.  We also used the gel medium to collage papers around the photo.

The third week has been working with Modelling Paste. Using stencils and embedded die cuts to give texture, again painting over with watercolours gives a lovely mottled effect.

Looking forward to this week using Fiber paste.
