Etsuko's piece is a riot of colour with some wonderful details. Her embossing powder really looks 'fused' with lots of fabulous little bumps and highlights.
Hi everyone, it's Etsuko My favorite Things with you today, and I'd like to share with you a Mixed Media piece 'NOW' using Seth Apter's fabulous new stamps.
I was inspired by his unique mixed media art and he always brings fresh art to us with new techniques and art materials.
After the background dried, I decided to use the ESA13 circle stamp shape because it was interesting. Chalk Fresco paint was painted on top of a rectangular masked Gelli Plate and added to the background. And I embossed these three circles with deep blue powder.
I used the same Chalk Fresco paint to stamp ESA14 in three places but wanted to add a little more somethings so I used Sepia Archival to stamp MN20 all over and marked the top with Blue Lagoon and Amethyst Fresco paints.
Using here, ESA15 NOW stamp with Black embossing powder.
I used colored inks and gloss medium in key areas for point coloring. At first I was going to use Fresco transparent colors, but I changed the color to ink because the color would be muddy inevitably. Of course Seth's Ice is best but I didn't get it right away; overseas is sometime difficult...
I tore the washi tapes around the piece and pasted black papers of different tones and materials to the base board below.
This is the finished project. I tried one layer for this piece, and although I had a hard time with the layout and composition, the process of making it was a lot of fun. I'm trying to make some more pieces.
Thank you so much for visiting.
Hope you stay safe and well.
