This morning I ran down to the studio to do a quick trial using my new modeling paste. I cut a circle out of some scrap cereal box board and placed it on the left hand side of my card. I just scraped the modeling paste over the circle stencil with my pallet knife. The smaller circles were made using a plastic stencil as was the "friends" text. Next I tried different mediums over the paste to see how they would react.
Starting at the bottom
Stripe 1 - watercolor
Stripe 2 - watercolorStripe 3 - 50/50 mix of acrylic and glazing medium
Stripe 4 - the same mix as 3 but with a bit of water mixed in with another color too
Stripe 5 - alcohol ink
Stripe 6 - sponged on inkpad ink
Stripe 7 - luminere paint
Vertical side stripe is of course gold leaf. I took a bit of black ink on my sponge and lightly wiped it over the word "friends" to bring it out a bit more.
Voila - lots of new ideas in my head now!
