Wonderment

Another intuitive painting. I had made this big peace heart stamp when I was on my stamp making kick, and was itching to use it. Then I got stamping fever, haha, and used a few of my other homemade stamps over a color blocked background….

Effect happy was I, so I went all out with some experimentation. Very fun was that!

I used a stencil to create the swirls with modelling paste, and did the streaking thing again with the crackle gel…

Then I also tried plastic wrap over wet paint….I love how that turned out….so random and beautiful! 🙂

I built up layers, and then I found some iridescent blue in my stash of old paint, and thought I would throw a little on my swirls…

I found these wonderful pens at the art supply store. Perfect for adding little details, like dots and words. They are acrylic, not ink, so will not smear when I put the varnish on at the end, and also are refillable, so that rocks! 😀

After layer upon layer, and tweaking with little details here and there, I ended up with something intricately colourful, joyful, and “wonderful”to look at. 🙂

BTW… It looks great on a shower curtain! 😀 @ society 6….

Artist and mom to 3 wonderful boys. Art is more than a hobby for me. It is like breathing. I need to create...it is a compulsion, and a passion. Color is joy...art is my escape.
