Day 16 - Inspired by a piece that judywatt did yesterday, I chose the photo that had the most neutral palette so I could play with black & cream today. I started with a layer of Burnt Umber, then Cream (my cheapo "folk art" bottle paint), then Quin Gold for my base.
I then glued on the magazine image. I layered in some Titanium White with my palette knife, including a strip between the two images. I dried with my heat gun creating the bubbles around the circular texture and along the left side.
I then began to alternate between washes and thicker paint, washing off with my ever ready cloth leaving only traces of each colour. The circle wasn't prominent enough so I heated with the gun and re-applied the circle (ie. stuck my tape dispenser circle into the paint and whacked it with my hammer) and added some more texture using my plastic mesh grid (same method - heat'n'whack!) particularly between the images as the strip was looking too obvious.
Continued to add and subtract colour until just the right worn quality was achieved. The right side of the image looked a little lopsided so I stamped in the word "sit" with my kiddy stamp set and Tim Holtz's Walnut Ink pad.
I like this one too! :)
