I have been having fun with some inventive mark-making layering time since being offered with the theme “tracks” and coupling that up with the designers Seth Apter and Gwen Lafleur. It had me serious about how we set ourselves targets/targets and have good intentions particularly initially of a New Yr and the way by mid February I overhear how some have given up no matter aim they set and many others and many others la la la…typically me included…and in order this weblog submit was resulting from come out across the finish of Feb I made a decision it would be good timing to make a small journal to document milestones/prompts or targets to place you (and me) again on monitor…it is also excellent timing for the beginning of the hundred day problem for these of you who participate in that…so I do hope you may get pleasure from what I have been as much as this time and possibly make one thing much like document your progress in…
I used to be thrilled with this session’s focus being on Seth Apter as I completely admit to being a little bit of a ‘Sethaholic’. I like grungy layered mark making and all of the worn scribbly bits it entails. Including Gwen Lafleur into the combo would undoubtedly permit me to have extra enjoyable with layers!
So the very first thing I did was seize a choice of colors by Seth Apter and paint them on some scrap paper…I knew it was going to be robust to restrict my color palette as all of them work nicely with one another. I usually restrict myself to 3 colors however this time I believed I’ve a number of pages to play with…I knew as soon as I began which colors would fall into place…
I did the identical with EM48 and PaperArtsy fresco end Heavy Cream acrylic paint making some actually enjoyable marks.
I actually like to over-stamp a picture to create texture…keep in mind to let this layer dry earlier than including one other layer of acrylic to drag your picture which helps so as to add depth to your print.
While my rubber stamp was nonetheless moist, I stamped it on one other gel print to construct layers and make extra attention-grabbing marks.
Have enjoyable utilizing the stamp units that you simply get pleasure from working with to make a number of completely different pages. Right here I stamped the gel plate first then waited for it to dry earlier than rolling via a stencil, doing it will elevate a few of the stamped areas making it much less uniformed…I let that layer dry too earlier than including a skinny layer of acrylic to drag the print.
