Tinged Blue {by Autumn Clark} with Kay Carley stamps


Hello everybody it is Autumn Clark from SewPaperPaint right here with you at the moment.  I’m such a fan of Kay Carley’s stamps and am all the time delighted to get to share a creation utilizing them.  

I am equally enthusiastic about this shade mixing subject.  As of late its extra sensible than ever to discover shade principle and blend up paint colours, thus stretching our artwork provides additional.  What higher strategy to begin than to discover “tints”  Mixing any shade with white will create varied ‘tints’ to lighten the core hue, on this case Surf’s Up. 

As was defined within the Matter Introduction, Surf’s Up is the colour all bloggers will likely be utilizing this subject so you’ll be able to see how one shade could be edited in lots of instructions with out compromising the hue. If you wish to brush up on the thought of shade tinting, then go brush up your understanding and skim the subject introduction. It’s filled with particulars of tints, shades, tone and saturation.


As I stated, for this subject we’re working primarily with PaperArtsy Fresco End Chalk Acrylic in Surf’s Up.  I made a decision to create an impressionistic background to point out off the varied tints I created with the white, Cloud 9 and actually loved including in some favourite Kay Carley stamps.  I hope it evokes you at the moment to combine up some tints of your personal and have a play!

I all the time buy odd sized canvases after I come throughout them and have had a few lengthy skinny canvases in my stash for a while, ready for simply the proper challenge.  Very often, I start my initiatives by sketching out the completed design.  This helps me get from level A to level B with out being distracted.

As soon as I had my design idea, I grabbed some shade.  I’ve to say, my most beloved Fresco End Chalk Acrylic is Cloud 9.  It is the right shade of white for me and results in 90% of all that I do.  What an ideal mate it’s for Surf’s Up!

I pulled out my trusty, crusty paint palette and regularly added an increasing number of Cloud 9 to a base quantity of Surf’s Up.  I spritzed the paint floor with water sometimes to maintain the paints from drying out whereas I labored.  

I combined my colours and and painted out the outcomes on a scrap of paper.  

As you’ll be able to see, the result’s a lovely ombre of shade.  

I actually needed so as to add texture to my canvas by including every shade as a blob and constructing layer upon layer in order that the highest of the canvas could be lighter than the underside.  This manner, the tint was seen not solely within the combined colours themselves, however the tint would assist create the phantasm of depth within the completed challenge.
