I was thinking about a friend of mine who transitioned to the other side way to early. This is to honor her and highlight her creative spirit. She looks angelic in a funky way! I didn’t want to use one of my photographs so I found something in a magazine. The chakra pocket stencils in the background are meaningful too.
Kewl Art Supplies Used
9×12 canvas board
CREATE pocket stencil
Third Eye pocket stencil
Crown pocket stencil
Dylusions ink spray in lemon zest
Silks acrylic glaze in cobalt, key lime, and pink azalea
embellishments galore: doilies, string, paper, flowers, magazine cutout, ribbon, watch face, and more
I created texture using all the stencils and modeling paste. Let it dry for a couple hours.
Glued down the magazine cutout and the embellishments with heavy gel medium. Let it dry for 30-60 minutes.
Go over everything with gesso. I did at least 2 coats but on some pieces and added a 3rd coat to others.
Then came the color. What fun! A brush of color here, a smudge there, and spray over there. After applying the analogous colors of blue, green and yellow I had to add a pop of color. So I used the pink.
