Studio Sunday

Well, it looks like we avoided a wintery mess this time around!  Thank goodness!  A little relief is appreciated for sure :)  I've been painting and spraying and just messing around here and some things I can't show right now (yet) but I'm really excited about this playful half-drop design that I will be ordering from Spoonflower today!!!  It just screams FUN to me and I have to have some fabric!!!  I mixed in digital brushes with the print in this half-drop in Photoshop.

 
 
One of the things I was playing with were new stencils and the Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Sprays.  The piece of paper below is just a messy page that I was flipping the stencils over onto to use up the ink sitting on the surface of the stencil.  I love this technique because you get the reverse of the stencil image and the droplets of ink make for a really interesting print.  There was also some dark blue acrylic paint mixed in with this.
 
 
 
 
I really love these sprays because when it dries, there is such a cool glimmer effect (beautifully subtle, not overdone) and as you move the paper around in the light you can see these patches.  Unfortunately they don't pick up in the photos.  Here is the original mess below which you can see I didn't change up except for to erase some of the edges.  I love the patches of color and shapes and outlines of those shapes from the flip technique.

 
 
I'm starting to stencil over the canvases using acrylic paint that I painted last weekend but this is the very under layer of what I see doing with these.  I'll share my process along the way no matter how ugly it turns out LOL.

 
 
I'm having fun working in a larger format and it's all a big experiment!  We will see what happens with the next layers!

 


Have a super creative weekend and stay safe and warm wherever you may be!

Very different. I like the cross stitch over the sprayed surface,and the canvas look.

Glad you got a break with the weather. We are minus 33 Celsius and that doesn't include windchill. :( We have been hibernating for two days and getting lots of studio organizing done. I'm ready to Spring and my Lindy's are waitng for their play day! I'm also awaiting your process and its gonna be good! :)

You're having some creative fun! The spoon flower fabric is going to be great.
We got about another 6 inches yesterday. It's amazing! More expected on Wednesday.
