I’m in Love with cities I’ve never been to and people I’ve never met.
It is true. I love to travel and I love to meet new people …but I also love to go back to places and to see people I know again.
I love the texture of this spread. I had painted the background with red and yellow acrylic paint and stenciled with my Ornament Wallpaper Stencil and some Spray Paint. The spray paint left a nice dimension on the background. So I lightly covered the whole spread with Liquitex Titanium Spray Paint – leaving the painted area peak through a bit but also create a nice textured area of the stencil. It gave it a bit of a grungy shabby chic look….if I want to label this look – LOL . Then I took some Liquitex Acrylic Inks and started painting the city skyline as well as the water- choosing contrasting colors to make it more pop. I mixed the Yellow Azo and Naphthol Crimson for a nice orange right on the spread, as the spray painted area was less absorbent than paper and left me longer time to work on it. I added some green and purple accents in the houses with Soft Body Paints. For the Windows and marks in the houses I used my Filbert brush and Fan Brush in different ways- it was fun to limit myself to the brush as a tool in creating those elements.
I used a Fine Line Applicator filled with Black Acrylic Ink and Black Soft Body Paint and added the scribbly lines around the houses. The quote was written with a black marker and then overwritten with a white Signo pen.
Do you like to travel?
Here is a list of all supplies I used:
