Below is this week’s inspiring quote from Colour Me Positive.
And my take on the prompt.
When I made this piece I had two goals, (1) to make a page which has a sense of tranquility, and (2) to use very few materials. I ended up using only, white gesso, brown from the koi water color pocket box, a tcw stencil and fluoro yellow acrylic paint, plus my usual alpha stamps, stamp pad and spare white papers for the quote and a black pen to make the words pop.
I learned using watercolor + stencil + acrylic paint when I was playing with them in 2014. I learned that the Koi water colors are chalk like and when rubbed with a make up sponge with acrylic paint over a stencil, it gives off a great effect. Its such a delight to back to the ‘basics’ once in a white. It never goes out of style and it surely is a great jumping off point for any mixed media piece.
