"Lit!" by Amanda Hartmann

 Hello Bee Arty fans!

Welcome to January 2022! Hopefully it will be totally "Lit!"

Today I am sharing a fun and quirky page - full of colour and technique!

I created a mixed media background, and finished with some papers fussy cut from the  Electric Dreams - Mini Collection Paper Pack.

The background:
If you want to see how I created the background - with Gesso, stenciling, puzzle pieces and Colour Artist Inks - you can watch this video:
This was a Facebook live video and I ended up with a spare background - finally pulled it out, and finished a page! Please skip the first 5 or so minutes on the video where I am mucking about, and then see how I create this mixed media background.

Products used for the background:
  • The stencil used is: Interwoven - A4 Stencil – Bee Arty - one of my favourite stencils of all time - I used modeling paste through the stencil
  • Heavy white Gesso - gesso'd background and more gesso over the puzzle pieces.
  • Added colour with Colour Artist Inks - I used Citrus, Cider and Spice. - used to colour puzzle pieces, stenciling, the Charm Creations star, to paint some fussy cut elements and to add splatters. Also used to colour the muslin.
Here are some close ups to see the details!

Thanks for looking,
