She Flies- Chrissi Mannix

Hello Lovelies

Welcome to my first blog post as a part of the new Bee Arty Creative Team. I'm so excited to be creating as a part of the team.

Today I have created an art journal page using the Colour Artist Inks, my favourite Stardust Stencil and an easy, but awesome technique I wanted to share with you. 
I made this page using a very simple Gesso Resist technique. All you need is white gesso, a stencil of your choice and a water reactive medium of some kind.

It is as simple as applying a thin layer of gesso through your stencil of choice, and letting it dry. Then applying your water reactive medium to your page. I have used Artist Inks for this. I applied Colour Artist Inks in the colours: Calypso, Bordeaux and Slipper. The ink will move and blend over the page, but you will notice the image start to appear. When you dry your colour, take a baby wipe and wipe over the image, you will see it pop against your colours. This is the gesso resisting the ink.

Once it was dried, I added black splatters using Colour Artist Ink in Soot. To add a focal point to my page, I used an older Bee Arty stencil to add my title- She Flies. I used black gesso through my stencil for this. I love how it boldly jumps of the page.

Colour Artist Inks are some of my favourite Colour Blast products. The perform beautifully for this technique, and I love the way they blend and move. 

I also have a YouTube Video of this process if you would like to see it come together.

I can't wait to share more with you in my upcoming posts.
