Here is a fun and easy project for all mixed media artists.
pages from a book or magazine, acrylic paint, gel medium, scissors, pen.
Draw a simple flower shape, outline it twice.
Paint the paper with one coat of acrylic paint and let it dry.
When the paint dries, coat each flower with gel medium....it can be glossy or matte.
Here I am using a thick layer of Golden Regular Gel (gloss)
Smear it on as thick or as thin as you want...when it dries, you will be able
to see and feel the texture you created.
Let it dry and cut around the design.
Add to your art work.
Play it up with gel pens, different colors of pens,
paints, and different types of paper.
Make a whole bunch all at one time and keep it
on your worktable for easy access.
