Ninja Seek, mixed media with a ninja and a message

July 7 a

Happy Monday!
This is the art piece I did for Artistcellar’s blog today.

Every so often, “whimsy/kitschy” makes its way into my art and Ninja Seek is proof of that.  This week’s piece is another example of a sculptural design, meaning, it pops off the canvas like last week’s Off The Canvas Gal.

Be swift and cunning like a ninja while SEEKing your Truth and Happiness.
Ninja Seek says, “Have a good week!”

Step 1
Spray on ink sprays.  In some spots I sprayed very close to puddle the ink.  Then I tipped the canvas to get the streaks.  If a puddle needed helped I used my water spritzer and sprayed into the puddle to get it moving.  Wax paper is under the canvas to catch the extra ink which I then “mopped up” with tags and paper so not to waste the glorious ink.

Step 2
While the ink is set but not dried, I used the mini mister and sprayed water onto the Os stencil.  After lifting the stencil, blot the canvas.  This is what Dyan Reaveley calls “ghosting.”  Cool effect.

Step 3
I used the tornado stencil with violet acrylic paint mixed with molding paste to give dimensional texture.

Step 4
Painted on the violet acrylic paint.  Then used cling wrap on top to add texture.

Step 5
Painted the mini stencil a yellow background.  Applied the Os stencil with orange acrylic paint.  After that was dried, used the orange ink spray with the stencil, which produced light colored Os.  Lastly, I outlined the SEEK stencil with a very fine point Sharpie marker.  Ninja then jumped onto the mini canvas to finish the piece!
