As a Frog Dog Studio Design Team Member, I have the privilege of receiving amazing mixed media products every month to create with…
This month, our December Kit included Viva Decor Modeling Cream, & several jars of LuminArte Silks Acrylic Glaze.
(along with MANY other goodies of course!)
These great products, along with Catherine Scanlon’s Grid Stencil (introduced to me through FROG DOG)
are what I used to create this framed Christmas piece.
I started this project by using black acrylic paint to stencil the “GRID” onto a piece of cold pressed, 140 Lb. Watercolor paper.
Next, I used a pencil to draw each element into the grid areas.
After that, I went over the pencil drawings with one of my favorite pens… Black Pitt multi-liner in XS.
Then, it was time to COLOR!
In the photo above, you can see a close up of the modeling cream added to the fur on the hat.
The red is LuminArte Silk in Carmen.
My photo doesn’t do the modeling cream justice, really…below is a photo of the depth and texture you can achieve with this amazing product…
Below, I am sharing some close up shots of this piece, so that you can see the brilliance and intensity
of color that LUMINARTE SILKS provide!
The SILKS I used in this piece were…
African Jade, Fern, Carmen, & Sunflower.
