2019 Topic 1: Mustard
From vibrant monoprinting on a cardboard book to exploring mixing translucent Fresco Finish paints, Ellie has brought us a book of delights stuffed full of colour and beautiful Hot Picks images.
Hi everyone, it's Ellie from PAPER-STAMPS-COLOR with you today, and I'd like to share with you a project using yellow Mustard Pickle Fresco Paint and some beautiful blue colors too. I chose to do some gelliprinting with them on pages of a cardboard book. When choosing these colors I knew that most of them were translucent paints... a few semi and opaque paints.
Why did I choose mostly translucent ones? I've long been wondering what the differences are! Now I know! As I also used some opaques, the mix of them together makes a semi opaque effect and sometimes a green colour of course! I've also sprayed on some water and/or retarder to give it a more watery translucent effect. They are all monoprints, so each page has been printed on only once!
I've wanted to use the HP1506 with its beautiful butterflies on these gelliprinted pages.
I've used these colors of Fresco Finish Acrylic Paints to print and color with:
Moving the flower PM002 - PA Mini Mask in the paint on the gellipate and brayering over it, or spraying water gives watery and repeated effects!
Starting with the printed pages now: this uses HP1506; I chose to make this the cover of the page, and used one of the gelliprinted tags also.
And finally: the back cover of the book. I've used the butterfly themed stamps from HP1506 and throughout the book I've used the BIG script from HP1501.
That is it.. 6 pages finished. I will finish the other six at a later stage.. Work In Progress!You will get to see them in a while! Yes really, in my next post for PaperArtsy!
The mustard yellow makes for beautiful contrasts on these pages, and in combination with the bluezzz, creates greens.. which I like very much!
I am happy with the results, and hope you enjoyed it as much as I did making them!
Have a go yourself.. it's fun!
Thanks for visiting today, and of course I'd appreciate if you left a comment, with a question, or maybe a suggestion for me of what you liked, or liked less?!
