You can find more informations about it here.
Hallo, schön, dass ihr bei mir rein schaut!
Heute möchte ich euch meine Juli Seiten des Travelling Art Journal Projekts für Canvas Corp Brands zeigen. Wenn ihr mehr dazu erfahren wollt, könnt ihr euch hier informieren.
This year I´m doing a online course to learn many different ways in painting/drawing faces (btw: I LOVE this classes!). Here I did some practising in challenging angles. I used a photo from the www., which I found that it is perfectly matching to the sentiment from CCB 7gypsies Mixed Media Pad Gypsy Moments.
This is the reference photo I used:
Here are some steps on what I made:
First I sketched the face with a pencil.
Then I painted it with several Acrylic paints and white Gesso.
To tone the face a little bit down I did some glazing with high impact paints and Matte Medium. I seals the painting at the same time =). I used this mix for the right side of the pages too to create the background.
To make it even more interesting, I used oil paint sticks in blue and white to set some highlights.
This is a very subtile way and I love it.
To adjust the color of the sentiment I gave the surface some glazing in blue.
For the right side of the journal I took some Glimmer Mists (dragonfly and black cherry) and Gimmer Glam turquoise and added somer sprinkles.
Next I added some gold leafes from my stash - ready!
Here are some close ups:
I hope you like my journal pages and I would love to hear what you think! Your comments are appreciated <3
