Those of you who have been hangin' 'round the blog for a while know how much I luvvvv deli paper. I think deli paper is such a cool way to incorporate layering into collage. When I was still creating Thermofax screens, I printed all of them to deli paper. Printed deli paper is one thing I am in abundant supply of and continue to use with my stencils. Looking for deli paper? Find it at Joggles.com.
This is another example of how you can use my Circle Master Template to create wall art. This time around, I used only black and white Thermofax screen-printed deli papers and some Dina Wakley Media Heavy Body Acrylic Paints. I also used a few Gelatos by Faber-Castell and a little pearlescent acrylic ink by Daler Rowney. Additional details were added using Sharpie waterbased paint pens as well. I highly recommend using a heavy gel medium to adhere the deli paper to the canvas as the canvas pockets the thinner glues such as Mod Podge, due to the canvas texture, and it won't result in as nice an application.
There are so many different ways that you can change up the application of the circle lines with the Circle Master Template so stay tuned for more!
I've been working away on my 4 pieces of fabric that I applied Dynaflo and Lumiere to through my Circle Master Template, it's very relaxing and I can get lost in it for hours. I'm thinking about how I want to finish these pieces, either separately or together as a larger piece. What I find really enjoyable is working on multiple pieces at the same time in the format of a series. In a series, you have more options and I'm all about that! LOL The first picture is before any stitching and you can see the vivid streaking of the colors and the changes in intensity. Yummy!!!
I adore the Jacquard colors and the coolest thing when applying Lumiere on top and spraying it with water is that the very same colors of Dyna-flo are the base for these metallic paints and when wet, the dye seeps out creating more intense shades under the metallic particles as you can see in this last picture above where the purple and gold show in the bottom left corner. Definitely check out the exciter packs that Joggles.com sells so you can play with this technique.
Next weekend, I'll be working on wearables! Don't miss it!!!
Have a fabulous weekend and don't stop creating!
