This has been a big week in our house due to Tony’s deteriorating health, so I have spent part of today relaxing and catching up on #CreativeJumpStart21. This was the perfect way for me to wind down a bit after a rough night where we didn’t get a lot of sleep. (yes, we have a plan for making tonight better!)
Today’s artist is Julie Fei-Fan Balzer. Although her process is very similar to mine, her thinking around colour created a positive change for me. I’m really happy with what I made today.
Yesterday’s artist was Julie Fei-Fan Balzer, again someone whose work I love. The piece she inspired us to create starts with a layer of various mediums so I had to leave it to dry overnight given our summer’s not exactly hot! Although this was scary to do – it involved pouring thin black paint right over the top of the previous layers – I would certainly use this process for something like a journal cover.
I used Golden garnet gel, Golden light modelling paste, Galeria black lava texture gel, Galeria medium grain gel and Golden gloss polymer for the initial layer. The colours are Golden fluid acrylics, Reeves copper paint, Golden Micaceous Iron Oxide fluid acrylic and Zinc White fluid acrylic.
