CJS17 day 6

Today’s artist was Jimmy Leslie, who talked about using mediums such as grit mediums and gloss medium in more structural ways including through stencils. I had a bunch of ideas for using mediums I already have but didn’t think about the layout as a whole. The result is an ugly, but useful, page that reminds of his tips and techniques!

The big red flowers have Golden Fine Garnet medium under them, used through a stencil. The green heavy body acrylic in the background was thinned down with Golden gloss polymer, which I also used as a glue. The red heart and the yellow circle in the centre of the collaged circle on the left are gel skins. The collages elements were a laser photocopy of some of my work which I coated with clear gesso so I could use a pen to add details.
