Serenity !!

Good morning beautiful people, Tracy here with today's post....

I love creating beautiful characters in my journal and this little lady is no exception (even if I do say so myself !!!)

I started by using some Finnabair modelling paste and put this on with a palette knife keeping it quite rough to add some texture to my page....

I began adding some of the golden acrylic colours to my background in Yellow Ochre, Titan Buff, Raw Sienna, Burnt Sienna and Quinacridone/Nickel Azo Gold and then stencilled using large dylusions stencils.....

I then sketched out my girl keeping the outline and shape simple and started to detail her with the paints, adding a sweet face with rosy cheeks

Then I wanted to add some shadows to my page. I used the darker paint colours to surround my figure and love how it makes her stand out from the page and gives a real 3D appearance. 

Finally I added my word with a black fine liner pen and painted up to the edges of th letters with my shadow colours to give some interest. 

I enjoyed playing with these paints and love the way the modelling paste adds so much texture to my page

Thank you for stopping by and visiting today

Bright and painty hugs
