For the 4th installment of Inspiration Wednesday we played some more with modelling paste. I love this stuff. It is so fun!
To begin this project, I covered the pages in text and then Donna instructed going through the text and framing words and phrases that jump out to you. I used a watercolour pen which I hoped would bleed when I whitewashed over the text (I used white acrylic and gesso) but it didn’t really. So then I drew around the boxes with a charcoal pencil to smudge the lines a bit and make the lines softer.
The closest I had was a stencil with words about family and I hand drew a flower in the corner. Again I used a charcoal pencil so that it would blur a bit.
Then I added some numbers to a tag and attached them to the paper. Finally I used burnt umber to make a glaze which caught beautifully on the modelling paste and splattered a bit of black ink in one corner.
Not my fave in terms of results but any creating is good and I love getting my hands covered in products and paint:) Bring on Inspiration Wednesday 5!
