After our day at the fair yesterday, I was anxious to get back home and begin adding some color to the fabric+paper pieces that I had made earlier. I actually have two full sheets now.
For the fabric+paper above I used Liquitex acrylic inks in Yellow Orange and Quinacridone Magenta and blotted with a paper towel. I added a few rubber stampings using StazOn ink. I’m not sure if I will add anything else to this one – it is already pretty busy with the checkerboard tissue paper. Maybe a bit of white acrylic or some Rub n Buff. Maybe even a thin layer of gesso to tone it down a bit.
For this paper+fabric I used Golden’s fluid acrylic in Green Gold mixed with some water to create a glazing on the paper. The paper now has a semi-gloss finish to it which is very nice. I will be adding more to this one. With all of the ridges that the tissue paper left, I may add the Rub n Buff Gold to accent it. This page will make pretty leaf cutouts.
The yellow pink fabric+paper was created using my last bottle of Aleene’s Tacky Glue and for the green gold fabric+paper I used regular Elmer’s white glue. Honestly, the one with Elmer’s glue has a better texture to it and that is what I will use as I create more.
Back to the studio for more art! (After I finish the last load of laundry).
I hope you enjoy your Labor Day holiday!
