Happy March to you all and a wish for a beautiful, colorful and very inspiring Spring!
Today, I would like to share a video tutorial of a project similar to “Mr. Skull,” that I presented for Daily ART at Creative World 2018, in Frankfurt. The layering techniques are almost the same. I also changed my focal point to something more popular than a steampunk skull ;)))
Come Away with Me on a hot air balloon, is an invitation for an escape to the clouds. Fly high and let your minds free! As you will see in the video, this project is all about using different kinds of paint and placing one layer on top of the other, by changing between translucent and opaque colors, using resists, and adding exciting details with background stamping and stenciling.
Here are some close-ups.
I hope you will like it and get some inspiration for your next projects!
