Today I'd like to share with you my latest DT project for the More Mixed Media Challenge Blog.
Our challenge goes live on the 5th of each month and is always an 'Anything Goes' challenge with an optional colour twist, this months colour is Blue.
Here's my project
My project this month is an altered notebook. I've used Faber Castell Gelatos in Pistachio, Blueberry and Metallic Blueberry for my background, after blending these together with a dampened cloth I added a layer of Liquitex Gloss Super Heavy Gel, This works wonderfully as a sealant and a glue, so I added some to the back of my centerpiece before layering that on top of the notebook whilst the gel was still wet, I added more gel over the centerpiece to seal it, then left it all to dry overnight.
My centerpiece is a page from the Spectrum Noir Colorista Premium Marker Pad - Butterflies, which I was lucky enough to receive as a freebie when i purchased my Spectrum Noir Illustrator Pens. I used Spectrum Noir Illustrator Pens to colour this page, I used the following colours;
Flower - TB3, TB4, TB5
Butterfly & Dragonfly - TB1, TB3, TB5, AP1, AP3, CT1, GG1
Leaves - GG1, GG3, LG1
I had great fun with this project, I think i'm starting to get the hang of my Spectrum Noir Illustrator Pens, they are certainly lovely pens to work with, and blend beautifully together. The Colorista Marker Pad is rather cool too, lovely quality cardstock and I love the glitter on it.
That's all from me for today, Thank you for visiting with me
Bye for now
