This month at Words&Paintery we have some typical Swedish colors for you to be inspired by. They are also very typical for summer. Blue as the sky and the ocean and yellow as the wonderful summer sun.
I made a mixed media layout with a pic of my oldest son in the playground. I wanted the layout to be both fun and summery and it turned out better than I hoped!
Below I even made a short picture tutorial of how the layout is made. (my video webcam seams to be on summer brake as well...stupid camera..)
I was inspired by Prima's BAP for this layout.
I started out with Heavy gesso through a stencil and let it dry.
Some splashes of ink and a stamp with houndstooth pattern in black to create even more contrast.
I cut strips of paper from different Prima paper pads and added tape (not sure what it's called in English?) for structure.
And finally some embellishments. These are only the big ones. The blue flowers are colored with the same blue color bloom as the background and then some white gesso.
The title is a chipboard piece from 2Crafty. It is first painted whit white gesso and then I stamped on it directly with my stamp pad
