Lets Face it part 2 - I got it wrong!!!


First of all I LOVE MY NEW BLOG - I think Susie of 1st Floor Flat Blogspot has worked miracles, she has been so patient with me, sent me numerous tutorials and really forced me to take this blog a little more seriously!

With that in mind - I have joined Google+, and also have a Followers button now - so please follow me!  At the moment I am a proper billy no mates!!

I would say I had a blonde moment, but I am not blonde.   I could say I had a senior moment, but I am not senior (although some would beg to differ!).   I should say I had a thicko moment......yep....that fits the bill perfectly!

All of this refers to the fact that in my previous post for the Artist Trading Post Challenge I didnt read the rules properly and used the wrong stencil!  DUH!!!!!

So I have done another entry and this time, fingers crossed, it should be correct!

 I did another face but slightly differently - I used The Crafters Workshop Stencil TCW261S Art is 
 First of all I painted my 6x4 canvas Soft Black, when dry used VIVA DECOR INKA GOLD in Turqoise through the stencil to give a nice background.

Then I drew the face onto paper.
Using the VIVA DECOR servietten medium through the stencil direct onto the paper, created a resist once it had dried.

Then I used the VIVA DECOR INKA GOLD in various colours as a paint, by added a small amount of water they turn into beautifully soft iridescent paints.  Then its glued onto the canvas with PVA glue.

I was really pleased with the way the resist turned out to be honest, it was a bit of a shot in the dark - but it worked and its something that I will certainly use again.

Have a great weekend and thank you for visiting!
