I have two favourite colours, which I think work perfectly together Turquoise and Green.
I thought the perfect image for this combo would have an under the sea theme, so I have used is Whimsical Seahorse.
I started by making some texture paste (glue, white acrylic paint & Talc) once I got to the right consistency I used it on a bubble mask on a flat canvas and left it to dry.
I wanted to play with my new Kuratake Watercolors, so I played around with a few different shades of blue and green, they are a lovely consistency, but i definitely need more practice with them.
I fussy cut my image and coloured with Copics.
When everything was dry I glued the image to the canvas and then stupidly went over the whole canvas with Glossy deco patch glue to seal it, not realizing that it would really dull down the colours and actually merge them a little, so I have lost a lot of definition on the colouring, still we live and learn.
But did I stop there, hell no I just had to add some glitter to his wings, I really must learn that sometimes less is more!!
I am pretty pleased with my 1st attempt at mixed media, but there are certainly many things I will do differently next time.
Do pop over to the Challenge Blog and see what my Teamies have been up to.
