1st Prima Project - July
I am so excited about this project I created for Prima using this image as inspiration:
I just adore this color scheme and theme. The first thing I thought of was the beach and a little sailboat in the water.
Here are the supplies I used:
Soft gloss gel 961459
white heavy gesso 961374
black heavy gesso 961459
art alchemy paint: steampunk copper - 963064, pink blue 963668
oil pastels 814328
color bloom - pearl white 573751
star stencil 960469
8x10 watercolor board 585679
I painted the girl on a piece of ephemera using the white gesso and the decadent pies watercolor set. The watercolor paints nicely on top of the dried gesso. I love the tooth that the gesso creates. I created the lil crab on some ephemera with the red oil pastel and stabilo pencil. I cut the girl out as well as the crab and glued them down with of the gloss gel. I love creating in this way because it allows you to audition out the characters as well as be able to play with the composition.
The watercolor panel is a beautiful substrate wrapping around to give you that gallery-like feel. And it comes ready to hang (which is awesome). I extended the colors around the board to give it some amazing depth and professional look.
