I choose to create a mixed media angel using NeoColor II watercolors, acrylic paints, stamps, papers, gel glass beads, gel pens and Posca Pens. The glass beads give an interesting texture on her shirt. It looks a lot different in person vs. in the photograph. In person, it's more of a shimmer, glassy look vs. little beads. The product is Liquitex Glass Beads. In addition to the added texture, the coating also gives a nice glazed appearance to where it was applied. Also difficult to see is the silver on her wings. A silver gel pen was used to outline the designs on her wings, as well as some shimmery paint. Stamping the word, "believe," on tissue paper and adding the verse from Psalm 28:7 completes the project.
I've enjoyed being part of the MMC for 2017 and look forward to continuing (hopefully with more participation) in 2018. HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!! Keep creating!
