Through the Veil...part 1

Grief I have been a bad blogger this last 2 months *slaps own hand*
today is day 8 of Samhain's Sirens Halloween/Samhain celebrations, and there is another give-away by East Coast Craft and Curios .
Art wise, I have been working on a new canvas, as I have already sent my Faerie God Mummy to her new owner Magaly. Hopefully she will arrive to celebrate with  Magaly her All Hallow's Grim, the Darker side of Faeries on the 25th of October.

I started by coating my canvas in till receipts(just cos I had plenty lol)

then coated with white gesso and added texture with modelling past. I wanted this canvas to have more depth.

Next I added colours that made me think of Samhain/Halloween

...and blocked out my figure with purple(cos I feel purple to be a spiritual colour)

Dry-brushing paint straight from the tube onto the textured areas...

and adding a layer of iridescent acrylic to the "cloud" areas.

Still felt a bit "flat" so have continued to add layers, and will reveal for Magaly's party on the 25th(probably) or sooner if I start something new Faerie wise(highly likely) :D
Enjoy :D XXX

  7. I just did a little dance! I'm sooo behind that it is ridiculous, but if you knew what I'm doing you would probably be proud of me *grin* I can't wait to see everything!
