GPP No53 ~ Mad Scientists – Take II

I just had to have another go with this Crusade (GPP Crusade No53 – Mad scientist) and the bluey / green painting of Michelle Ward had seeped into my imagination, so that’s where I started with this.

It turned into an epic painting session, so for those who only want the highlights, I’ll put the colours and names first, then you are free to go.

For those that want all the details, then continue to scroll down!

GPP No 53 – Mad Scientists

Started with blue, yellow and white, and a gesso’d art journal layout.

Then mixed 50/50, then mixed a colour between each of those.

The Epic Paint Session

Started with mixing colours and painting the art journal layout – not my usual style but it will do.

Then I had paint left over, so I pulled out some chipboard and painted in various colours to add to the layout later.

Still more paint – credit card painted a text sheet.

Mixed the colour together to get the mid teal and added a wash to another text page.

Still more paint …. what to do? Ahah! Pulling prints – pulled out more text pages from an old book, tore into pieces and added it into the paint. Little too much, then smudged in onto another text sheet.

Still more paint… what next? Ahah! Tissue paper – grabbed a handful, narrowly avoiding a pin left in it by my grandmother and avoiding injury. Added teal in a wash. Grabbed another brush with a bit of yellow and added highlights; another brush with blue.

Almost over… grabbed a sponge and added circles onto a text sheet…

That’s it ….. no more paint; AND it’s dinner time and I can hear the boys fighting – better clean up and get dinner ready!

Phew! What an epic paint session! What a mess! I can hardly get out of the room!

Thanks for getting to the end! Happy crusading!

Gothic Arches – Tags

The Gothic Arches challenge this week is Tags! I have a grand collection of Tags that I don’t often use, so this was the chance to get them all out. Having said that, I only ended up using one tag… all the rest are waiting to be put away.
